Host a Medical Student in the Twin Ports and Throughout the United States
In order for students to experience a variety of clinical settings, they need to travel to different places. Recent Duluth Campus survey results revealed that the biggest barrier for students is finding a reasonably priced place to stay during their clinical rotations.
Over the past few years, Duluth Campus alumni have supported current students by opening up their homes – whether it is a spare bedroom, a basement living space, or even a guest house on the property, both alumni and students find this experience rewarding. As the program has expanded, practicing medical alumni in Duluth, Superior, up the north shore and even in Alaska have offered space for students to expand their horizons.
“I am a student who was hosted in the Duluth area. I enjoyed my experience! Everything went well including sharing space. I would refer this program to other potential hosts and students., Keep this program for hosts and students! It's a fantastic way to support medical school students and for community members to connect with future physicians.” – Duluth Campus Medical School Student
