Thank you for your interest in rotating at Michigan Medicine.

VSLO (VSAS) begins accepting applications on March 28, 2022. We align our application time with VSLO. In addition to your VSLO application, you must submit your supplemental application to the OHEI Health Equity Visiting Clerkship. HEVC Application You can submit both applications at the same time or the supplemental application can be submitted after you’re accepted for a visiting rotation. Please note the HEVC acceptance is contingent on being accepted for a rotation at Michigan Medicine. While we accept students on a rolling basis, we recommend starting rotations in May 2022 for the 2022-2023 academic year. 

The Health Equity Visiting Clerkship is a 4-week experience sponsored by the Office for Health Equity and Inclusion at Michigan Medicine for M3 and M4 students. The aim of the clerkship is to diversify the pipeline and develop leadership skills to advance diversity, health equity, and inclusion.

The Office for Health Equity and Inclusion leads efforts, advises on best practices, and coordinates initiatives to enhance inclusion, increase diversity, and promote equity across the institution for our patients, staff, faculty, and learners.

Together with critical stakeholders, we are committed to:

  • Improving the health and well-being of those underrepresented and under-served in health care through continuous quality improvement initiatives, health equity research, inclusion science, implementation science, outcomes research, and community-based participatory research.
  • Creating health equity and inclusion best practices for patient care and pipeline programs for learners, faculty, and staff.
  • Transforming health care by creating a climate and culture that promotes inclusion, cultural sensitivity, diversity, and health equity.
