McKenzie Health System is pleased to announce a continued partnership with Central Michigan University’s (CMU) Comprehensive Community Clerkship program, part of the CMU Medical School. CMU College of Medicine has a strong emphasis on rural and medically underserved regions. This clerkship allows the students to gain essential experience in a rural setting.
On January 14, Angela Ortiz will work alongside Dr. Matthew Gormley at McKenzie’s Croswell Clinic. From Kalamazoo, Angela earned her Bachelor of Art in Chemistry and Bachelor of Science in Biology/Pre-Medicine, both from Ferris State University. Her interests include skiing, biking, cooking and reading.
“Hands-on training is vital to the development of well-trained medical professionals,” said Steve Barnett, President and CEO of McKenzie Health System. “We appreciate the opportunity to partner with CMU and provide this type of experience to the dedicated and talented individuals we hope to see caring for our communities in the years ahead.”
Ms. Ortiz will work in partnership with McKenzie Health System through June 2019. Please join us in welcoming her to our community!
