About the Office of Postdoctoral Studies

Postdoctoral Training at the University of Michigan Medical School

Michele Swanson

The University of Michigan Medical School supports more than 700 postdoctoral fellows. Our mission is to connect you with the abundant resources available within your department, across campus and around town and to advocate for postdocs in University policy discussions.

We coordinate with the U-M Postdoctoral Association, Rackham Graduate School, the International Center, and mentors throughout the U-M Medical School and the Health System to help each fellow become a successful, independent scientific professional.
