Undergraduate medical education

Sparrow Health System combines forces with Michigan State University to provide an ideal setting for third- and fourth-year medical students.

Students benefit from MSU’s world-class medical education and Sparrow’s excellent medical care. Sparrow’s well-rounded clinical experiences are a bridge to graduate medical education and residency programs.

Students are provided with guidance and mentoring by physician teaching faculty and senior residents whose goal is to prepare the next generation of medical leaders.

Sparrow’s affiliation with MSU’s nationally recognized medical schools, the Colleges of Human Medicine and Osteopathic Medicine, was strengthened through a comprehensive strategy adopted in 2009. That strategy includes expanded medical education between Sparrow and MSU.

In addition, elective clerkships are available in a variety of specialty areas for visiting medical students from colleges of medicine approved by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education.
