Title

Exhibit - College of Human Medicine

Michigan State University's College of Human Medicine has its roots in the concern during the 1950's that the State needed more physicians. MSU, because of its size and central location, was a logical choice for a new medical school. But the idea of starting a new medical school, as opposed to expanding existing programs at the University of Michigan and Wayne State University, also had many opponents, particularly at the University of Michigan.

Nevertheless, the Institute of Biology and Medicine was founded in 1961 to coordinate existing programs in various sciences, the Veterinary School and the anticipated programs in Human Medicine. College of Human Medicine was officially formed in 1964 and Andrew H. Hunt of Stanford University was named Dean. The College's first class was admitted in 1966 to a two year pre clinical program. Students were to complete their medical training at other medical schools. In 1970 the College of Human Medicine was granted permission to become a full four year program.
