Saginaw Cooperative Hospitals received a HRSA grant to support and train 6 additional Internal Medicine residents from Central Michigan University. The Internal Medicine residents will be working at the CMU Health Riverfront ambulatory primary care center and Ascension St. Mary's hospital. Both clinical sittes are located in a health professional shortage area (HPSA). This grant furthers their goal of training diverse and culturally-competent physicians who will improve access to healthcare for medically-underserved populations in the Saginaw area. The grant period ends in 2026.
