Outstanding Education

Our evolving systems-based curriculum is driven by experts and powered by student input. Fostering relationships with patients, peers and mentors begins on day one with the Initial Clinical Experience, and grows with opportunities through the Doctoring Course, Paths of Excellence and Leadership Initiative. Pass/fail grading allows students to focus on learning — and enjoy support across classes. Increasing independence in clinical experiences over four years prepares students for a seamless transition to residency.

Global Impact

Making connections with patients in every type of healthcare setting is a big part of the University of Michigan Medical School experience. Whether it’s on campus, in our community or across the world, our students and faculty are engaged in global health care, education and research on every level.

Culture of Inclusion

We value diversity in all its forms. It’s at the heart of a healthy, well-rounded medical education. We strive to maintain a 50/50 split between in-state and out-of-state residents so students can expect to rub shoulders with peers from all walks of life and, through these interactions, learn how to better relate with their future patients.

Research Resources

The NIH and other agencies, industries, foundations and donors support an incredible spectrum of research here. Our grants and awards total more than $470M, ranking us among the top 10 schools. This level of support gives students access to a range of research projects and plenty of expert mentors to guide them.

Close Encounters

In addition to state-of-the-art clinical and research facilities on site, our school shares the greater University campus with other top-ranked schools in Public Health, Engineering, Public Policy, Social Work, Law and Business. We can help you connect with them through individual courses or dual degrees.

Great Match

Our students consistently match into their ranked programs at higher-than-average rates, and are among the top five most sought-after candidates by residency directors nationwide -- an inspiring endorsement of our graduates and the people who train them.


Total Support

Our admissions process is transparent—we let you know early and often about where you stand. Plus, every admitted student is eligible for a scholarship. We award grants to about half of all incoming students, more than any other public medical school.

Balanced Life

At Michigan, work and play are not mutually exclusive. Our curriculum makes room for your life outside of med school too. Flextime quizzes give you the freedom to plan your weekend your way—opening up your schedule to try lots of new things, like intramural sports, clubs and organizations, studies in other schools and exploring everything Ann Arbor.
