MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) -- A proposal to open a new Michigan medical school is advancing with Central Michigan University submitting an application to the national accrediting group for doctor training.
The Mount Pleasant-based university made the request to the Liaison Committee on Medical Education at a Wednesday meeting in Chicago.
Central Michigan's trustees voted in September 2008 to start a medical school. Students would spend the first two years on campus and the next two at area clinical facilities.
Michigan's three medical schools are at the University of Michigan, Wayne State and Michigan State universities. Oakland University and Beaumont Hospital open one next year, while Western Michigan University's board approved one in January.

    Michigan has FOUR medical schools: U of M, Wayne State, MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) and MSU College of Human Medicine (M.D.) Due to the lab space and cadavers needed for training docs,class sizes are limited. We have a shortage of Family Practice docs & internists, more schools would help meet the need.
