Student Life




Students have the chance to travel to Peru to participate in the annual Peru Health Outreach Project.
Student life at CCLCM is not an oxymoron: While our students are busy learning to become physician investigators, they round out their medical school experience with activities inside and outside the college. 

Hear what our students have to say about extracurricular activities.

Many students involve themselves in academic and social groups, from the Student National Medical Association to the Medical Book Club. Working on the Community Health Initiative and the Peru Health Outreach Project allows students to offer firsthand help to medically underserved people. And participating in the annual Doc Opera show gives students a chance to stretch their creative muscles while raising money for Cleveland’s Free Clinic.


Other important aspects of student life at CCLCM include: 

 
We provide a range of support for multicultural students, and welcome all students.
