In collaboration with Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, MidMichigan Medical Center, Gratiot is an unopposed new three-year program approved for training allopathic medicine.

The MSU/MidMichigan Medical Center - Gratiot Family Medicine Residency Program, located in Alma, Michigan, is focused on rural, community-based hospital and clinical practice. Most physician office rotations and all continuity clinics will be based in Alma.

Our program received approval by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in October 2015. We will admit the inaugural class of four first-year residents in Summer 2016. You will see our program listed through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS):
