About MSU/MidMichigan Medical Center - Gratiot Family Medicine Residency

Logo - MSU College of Human Medicine

Our program is an unopposed three-year program, which means there are no other residents to compete against for clinical hands-on experience. We are focused on rural, community-based hospital and clinical practice. Training takes place primarily at MidMichigan Medical Center – Gratiot. Most physician office rotations and all continuity clinics are based in Alma.

We are a unique program, as our health system is affiliated with the University of Michigan, our residency program is sponsored by Michigan State University, College of Human Medicine. This provides you with the opportunity to practice in a small community hospital, while also providing access to large academic centers as well.

Additionally, MidMichigan Health is a clinical training campus for Michigan State University (MSU) and Central Michigan University (CMU) medical students. This provide an opportunity for you as a resident to develop leadership skills with mentoring and guiding medical students.
