Medical Student Information

Thank you for your interest in the MetroHealth Medical Student Elective Program. We take enormous pride in the training of our medical students. One of our most important guiding principles as a well-respected institution is to maintain excellence in teaching and research. It is here where students can learn the practice of medicine through a progressive team in a renowned working environment. Through more than 25 medical specialties, students are well-prepared for their postgraduate experience. We are able to offer one of the most unique learning experiences with a diverse patient demographic in a group practice setting.

Not only does our faculty provide students with the appropriate skills and experience necessary to succeed in medicine, but an amicable and dedicated Graduate Medical Education staff provides excellent service and guidance to medical students. The medical student specialist in the Graduate Medical Education Office processes student applications, schedules rotations, administrates weekly orientation, follows up on evaluations of completed rotations, and is available on campus to answer individual questions or concerns that may arise throughout a student's experience.

When students choose the MetroHealth Medical Student Elective Program, they are given the opportunity to succeed in one of the best programs in Ohio. Our team provides students with a robust didactic in medicine and works to maintain a great learning atmosphere for all students.
