High school level
Hurley hosts health-career days for high-school learners to learn more about various health fields. We also partner with area programs to provide observerships and training for those at the high-school level.
Currently, we train students in the following clinical areas: medical assisting, medical technology, nursing (BS, RN, Anesthesia, midwives, nurse practitioners, other graduate-level), occupational therapy, pharmacy, phlebotomy, physical therapy, physician assistants, radiology technology, respiratory therapy, social work, surgical technology, sonography, speech and language pathology, and more.
We also accept nonclinical rotators, such as students in healthcare administration, information technology, premed, research, writing, and more.
Medical students who wish to complete a clerkship at Hurley must contact the Flint office of our affiliated medical school, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. The Flint Campus of MSU-CHM can be reached at 810-600-5600. Only the medical school can arrange for medical student clerkships at Hurley. Do not contact Hurley directly.
How is Hurley handling Coronavirus-19 for its students?
Students must report temperature, symptoms daily
Most health student rotations have been reinstated at Hurley Medical Center following pandemic-related suspensions. We look forward to hosting all students - and, together, we can minimize the COVID-19 risk and provide optimal patient care. Because personal protective equipment (PPE) has become a sarce and expensive resource, PPE fees may be charged to student rotators.
When your rotation does begin at Hurley, you will be asked to report your symptoms and exposure daily to your home institution and to notify Hurley Medical Center of any positive exposure and/or symptoms. A Hurley pandemic infosheet, FAQs, and acknolwedgement signature-page gives the details and will be provided before your rotation begins.
At present, Hurley requires universal masking for anyone entering the building, which means you will need to wear a basic procedure mask when you are on the premises, except in instances when you are in your own private office or when you are eating. (When you are eating, please keep 6 feet between you and any others - and be sure to wipe down your eating area and chair, etc., before and after your meal.)
During the coronavirus pandemic - and in other instances of potential or actual infectious disease outbreaks, Academic Affairs at Hurley Medical Center follows the hospital's infection control policies and guidelines, which are based on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and may change as the situation develops.

This coronavirus is new and has caused an outbreak of respiratory illness, first identified in Wuhan, China, in fall 2019. The illness caused by the virus is called COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019). [Image is free to use, per the CDC.]
