Global REACH helps to welcome many dozens of students, scholars, and healthcare leaders visiting Michigan Medicine from abroad each year. During the 2018-19 academic year, we coordinated the visits of 65 learners from Brazil, China, Ghana and elsewhere, in addition to many more dignitary and leader visits from partner institutions.

Michigan Medicine welcomes about 30-35 international students a year for clinical elective rotations, visits facilitated through Global REACH. Because space is limited, we accept only students from partner institutions.

Global REACH offers support on an as-needed basis to Michigan Medicine departments welcoming visiting faculty from abroad for shadowing and/or training purposes.

Our Outgoing Travel Resources area has information about getting visas, travel health insurance, a suggested pre-departure timeline, and more.
