Education

We've been passionate about education since 1850 when we opened our doors. For us, the quality education we provide translates directly into excellent patient care, education and research:

  • U.S. News & World Report ranks the University of Michigan Medical School as #8 in the nation for primary care and #12 for research, and our graduates are ranked among the top 5 by residency directors nationwide.
  • Our nearly 700 M.D. students receive outstanding clinical and research training in an inclusive, collegial environment.
  • The Ph.D. programs and Medical Scientist Training Program (M.D./Ph.D.) at Michigan attract the best and the brightest in their fields to become the research scientists and laboratory leaders of the future.
  • U-M’s residency and fellowship programs bring more than 1,000 of the best new physicians from around the country and the world to our hospitals and health care centers every year.
  • Our 700+ Ph.D., M.D. and D.V.M. postdoctoral fellows gain support in research training and professional development from the Medical School’s Office of Postdoctoral Studies.  Across campus, the U-M Postdoctoral Association brings together all 1400+ Michigan Postdocs.
  • Michigan’s clinical environment is a hub for training medical professionals in wide range of fields including research, public health, policy, medicine, pharmaceutical industry and education/outreach.
  • Every year, thousands of physicians attend our Continuous Professional Development programs to keep abreast of change and innovation.
  • Our School of Nursing ranks #6 in NIH funding among schools of nursing with research ranging from promoting health and managing chronic illness and pain to moving evidence-based findings into practice and communities.
  • Approximately 1,000 nursing students are spread among B.S.N., numerous masters, and D.N.P. and Ph.D. programs. Among non-degree options, the new Clinical Research Management Certificate program is taught completely online.
