The Central Michigan University College of Medicine (CMED) was founded for the purpose of producing high-quality physicians for underserved rural and urban communities in the U.S. Midwest region, particularly in central and northern Michigan.
Students admitted into the medical school will learn from a curriculum designed to prepare them to practice in these areas when they complete their residency training. This curriculum will utilize advanced technology, including state-of-the-art simulation and clinical skills labs.
In addition to learning about the health needs of Michigan residents through the curriculum, students will gain first-hand experience by working with physicians and hospitals throughout the region.
A view of the health of communities will also stimulate health-related research on diseases that specifically impact these geographic areas such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease, and cancer.
CMED provides training for sought-after primary care physicians in the following areas:
- Family Medicine
- Internal Medicine
- Obstetrics & Gynecology
- Emergency Medicine
- General Surgery
"We are a big school but we act and feel like a small one. Students get a lot of personal attention. It is truly one of our great features. The strength of CMU lies in our caring faculty and staff." Chris Brown, CMED Admissions, Financial Aid.
