Meharry Medical College Expands Partnership With Detroit Medical Center

Historically Black Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, has expanded their partnership with the Detroit Medical Center to provide additional medical education and training for Meharry students in the Detroit metro area.

The partnership between these two institutions first began in July 2018. Through the collaborative program, students from Meharry can train with doctors at the DMC’s Sinai-Grace Hospital. The newly enhanced partnership will allow more students to participate in the program.

“Meharry understands that Detroit is facing a shortage of primary care physicians,” said Veronica Mallett, senior vice president of health affairs and dean of Meharry Medical College School of Medicine. “By providing our students early exposure, they will think of the DMC for residency and possibly return to further their training. This pipeline could ultimately help the citizens of Detroit through improved access to quality of healthcare.”
