Flint is also home to the Late Clinical Experience for students selected to the Leadership in Medicine for the Underserved Program.
In addition to the college's efforts in Flint over the last year, the school was also acknowledged for reinforcing collaboration in rural areas by way of the Rural Physician Program and the Rural Community Health Program. The initiatives aim to relieve rural physician shortages and provide enriched clinical experiences with community service opportunities unique to rural settings.
