University of Michigan

The NCSP at Michigan is based in the University’s uniquely interprofessional and interdisciplinary Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation. We provide clinical, organizational, and community-partnered research training. Keys to our success have been intensive mentorship, leadership coaching, and intentional fostering of strong collaborations among peers to help diverse clinicians make the world healthier and more just. We work locally—in Detroit, Ypsilanti, Flint, and rural Michigan—as well as on state, national, and global stages.
