MSU College of Human Medicine, UP Campus
The Upper Peninsula Campus
The UP Campus was established in 1974 as the pioneer of the Rural Physician Program, under the Leadership in Rural Medicine certificate program. The UP Campus is one of Michigan State University College of Human Medicine’s eight clinical community campuses throughout the state. First-year students in their Early Clinical Experience (ECE), and second-year students in their Mid Clinical Experience (MCE) begin the college’s Shared Discovery Curriculum in either Grand Rapids or East Lansing for the first two years. Students in their Late Clinical Experience (LCE) relocate to complete their clinical training in Marquette and in rural underserved locations across the UP.
The UP Campus is affiliated with UP Health System – Marquette, a regional referral center and the primary clinical training site. The brand-new hospital facility opened in 2019 providing students the benefit of training in a new facility with state-of-the-art equipment.
The primary living site for our students is in the City of Marquette, the largest city in the Upper Peninsula, located on the shores of Lake Superior. Students have easy access to trails, beaches, parks, walking paths, bogs, rugged rock outcroppings, waterfalls, and boundless other recreational opportunities.
The UP Campus is closely affiliated with the Marquette Family Medicine Residency Program and the Michigan State University Psychiatry Residency Program, Upper Peninsula Rural Track. The family medicine and psychiatry residents assist and instruct our students, providing resources, support, and mentorship.
As part of the Upper Peninsula Education Corporation, we also support pre-medical education with shadowing opportunities to provide enriched experiences for qualified pre-med students. Our clinical experience liaison facilitates all learners who enter the hospital, collaborative with UPHS-Marquette.
