Admissions

A medical education experience at MSU College of Human Medicine is like none other. Here you might "catch" your first baby during your obstetrics clinical rotation, or provide care to underserved families on a medical mission trip, or conduct research, side-by-side with the world's top Parkinson's disease scientists.

Spartan MDs make a difference in the lives of others. We are ranked #6 out of 141 U.S. medical schools for our overall social mission - of graduating MDs from minority backgrounds, who practice in primary care or who work in underserved areas.

As a community-focused medical school, we believe in exposing our students to real world medicine and diverse populations that match the public health challenges faced by all physicians in the medical profession. The opportunities to learn beyond the curriculum are amazing and the work helping people is inspiring. Ask any Spartan MD.

Medical School Admissions Diversity and Inclusion Statement

In order to best meet the needs of an extremely diverse population of people from Michigan and beyond, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine’s admissions process uses a balanced and holistic approach that considers an applicant’s academic metrics, experiences and personal characteristics in an attempt to achieve the educational benefits of a diverse student body. It also recognizes that many applicants who are underrepresented in medicine come from geographic, socioeconomic and educational disadvantaged backgrounds, and that people from these backgrounds are more likely than others to eventually serve disadvantaged, underserved and marginalized populations. As such, our admissions selection approach also allows for consideration of disadvantaged status in the decision-making process.   MSU College of Human Medicine Diversity and Inclusion Statements
