Community Involvement

Community service is at the heart of our medical curriculum. Students work with community partners for 40 hours of service during their four years of medical school.

Flint students go above and beyond to make a difference in this community. 

  • For five years, students organized a Flintstone Challenge 5K, raising more than $50,000 for the Flint Community Schools Classroom Support Fund.
  • In 2019, student Onome Oboh and several other Flint students partnered with the Division of Public health to hold a free health clinic in partnership with Hamilton Community Health Network.
  • Through the Leadership in Medicine for the Underserved Program, students have traveled to various countries including, Costa Rica, Uganda, Peru and India on medical mission trips and spent months beforehand securing medical supplies and donations.
  • Many students have been involved in mentorship and tutoring through the Pick a Place and Start Program (PAPAS).
