Your Academic Home Base
From your first moments on campus, the innovative spaces of the Taubman Health Sciences Library will be integral to your training as a future physician.
Each of the five floors is optimized to support your learning in the medical school curriculum: study, lectures, collaboration, clinical simulation suite with standardized patient instructors, interprofessional training, small groups, mentoring, social gatherings, and more. U-M informationists and tech support staff are available to help you take full advantage of the vast resources at your disposal.
Your Clinical Training Ground
There are many settings and opportunities to care for patients available for your clinical training, starting with the medical center adjacent to the medical school, which has more than 48,000 inpatient discharges and 2.1 million outpatient visits each year.
Several hospitals, private medical groups and community agencies located in southeastern Michigan provide our students with exposure to a diverse population as well as exposure to urban and rural environments, and underserved patient populations. Arrangements for rotations at other institutions, at home or abroad, are considered on a case-by-case basis.
The Michigan Medicine campus also houses two state-of-the-art Clinical Simulation Centers that are open 24/7 so med students can independently practice skills or complete training modules whenever they want.
