 Spartan Street Medicine (SSM) is a MSUCOM student-run organization bringing together osteopathic medical students and physicians to regularly provide basic health services directly to our underserved community members in the day shelters and on the streets of Lansing, MI. Our primary purpose is to connect, or reconnect, our patients to primary care for sustainable maintenance of their health and well-being. We strive to adapt our patient-centered model to overcome socioeconomic barriers to care and meet the unique needs of each patient we serve.

 

 

Mission Statement:
Spartan Street Medicine is dedicated to bridging the gap in healthcare for our homeless  community members in Lansing, Michigan. We battle the epidemic of indifference  by going to the streets and shelters to meet people on their terms. Through  regular and direct outreach, we aim to overcome barriers to health by fostering
relationships with our patients and community partners. By striving to convey  trust, empathy, and respect to all involved in our program, we hope to instill  these values throughout our healthcare system.

 

JOIN OUR TEAM:

We need attending physicians! If you are an empathetic physician who is passionate about serving the underserved, we would love to have you on our team! This role is laidback with low time-commitment (~4 hours x 1 day/month or bimonthly). SSM can work around your schedule.  Please refer to the Attending Orientation document to get more information on expectations of our physicians!

 

In addition, we need Primary Care Physicians to whom we may refer patients for sustainable care. If you practice in the Lansing area, please let us know if we may refer any patients to you.

 

To get involved, contact SSM at spartanstreetmedicine@gmail.com. Thank you for your interest!
