At Michigan State University Flint Area Medical Education, we encourage you to actively participate in research to improve your clinical knowledge, skills, and techniques for diagnosis and treatment as well as the health of the community.

Join us for our community research forum! The annual research forum is a collaborative event sponsored by Michigan State University Flint Area Medical Education and our three partnering medical centers: Genesys Regional Medical Center, Hurley Medical Center, and McLaren Regional Medical Center. Over 150 oral and poster presentations of original research are submitted from teaching faculty, fellows, resident physicians, medical students, nurses, and other health professionals at this event each year.

New Combined IRB Application coming soon! Recently, we have developed a Tri-Hospital Consortium for the purpose of establishing a combined IRB application to be used as the portal process for researchers who intend to do projects at all three of the Flint-area hospitals.

All sponsorships and general donations are acknowledged at the Forum and on this website.
