Campaign to Enhance the Student Experience

For decades, the MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine has been a leader in education, research, outreach and service. Amid all the changes in health care, the principles of osteopathic medicine are still being championed and valued as never before at the college.

Our students strive to be doctors who truly value their patients as partners in health. They plan to work with diverse populations to treat the whole person as well as the symptoms, while promoting healthy living in the communities they serve. Many hope to become researchers who make major scientific breakthroughs and the professors who develop the next generation of medical leaders. It is because of these goals that the MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine embarks on The Campaign to Enhance the Student Experience

To rise to the future challenges of health care and be agents of change, we believe our students must be able to take advantage of opportunities that provide them with the experience and skills to become the osteopathic physician they envision. Our goal is to generate support focusing on the areas of:

  • Student scholarship
  • Student research
  • Student outreach and service

Please consider joining us in making a difference for our students and the future of osteopathic medicine.

Support Student Endowed Scholarship

Medical students must be able to choose their life’s work based on their talents, interests and passion to serve, not based on how much debt they may accrue. We need osteopathic physicians who represent the diverse and vibrant communities we live in. Our future physicians must be able to see themselves serving in all communities from remote rural corners of the Upper Peninsula to metropolitan Detroit.

Endowed scholarships support these students. Endowment gives us the ability to attract and retain a diverse, talented and committed study body who will face the challenges of modern medicine and enter the profession without being overwhelmingly burdened by debt. Your support will enable us to meet this challenge.

You may wish to establish your own named endowment and assist in developing the criteria, or contribute along with other committed individuals in growing the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine Endowed Scholarship AS00025. This university initiated endowment will provide general support, and all MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine students in good standing are eligible.

Support Student Research Opportunities

The college has always valued the research and scholarly activities of our students, as evidenced by our DO-PhD training program. We now seek to expand these research experiences to a greater number of our students. By doing so, we will not only improve their competitiveness for the residencies and fellowships they may eventually aspire to join, but also cultivate the natural tendencies of these bright minds to bring new insights and perspectives to bear on the challenges in medicine. We will expand our ongoing research efforts to position our students to create new medical knowledge and improve the lives of all we serve as a profession. 

You may wish to establish your own named endowment supporting and area of research you are passionate about, or contribute along with other committed individuals in growing the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine Student Research Endowment AS00023. This university initiated endowment will provide general support for all student research opportunities.

Support Student Outreach and Service Activities

What our students learn in the class room is only one aspect of being a competent and compassionate physician. It is through outreach and service programs like the College of Osteopathic Medicine Global Outreach Program, Detroit Street Care and Spartan Street Medicine that many of our student develop the skills to be a truly outstanding caregiver. These programs and activities enable our students to interact with diverse populations, engage in a practical learning environment, and bridge concepts presented during the pre-clerkship curriculum with real-world clinical exposure. The experiences expand their training by developing skills fundamental to the physician-patient interaction, while providing care for those most in need.

You may wish to establish your own named endowment supporting the area of outreach and service you are passionate about, or contribute along with other committed individuals in growing the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine Student Outreach and Service Endowment AS00024. This university initiated endowment will provide general support for all student outreach and service activities.
