all medical students at MSU’s College of Human
Medicine spend their first two years on the East Lansing
campus. Students then elect to spend their final 2 years
at one of six community campuses including East
Lansing, Grand Rapids,
Flint, and the Upper
Peninsula. In coming years, it is anticipated that
the Medical School class size will expand by 50, with
some of the additional students spending their 2nd,
3rd and 4th years at the Grand Rapids campus. Eventually,
it is envisioned that a full four-year campus will exist
in Grand Rapids. The East Lansing campus will retain
its full complement of medical students, residents and
fellows during and after this expansion.
