Hospital Placements

NOTE: For students interested in serving with McLaren Hospital or Sparrow Hospital, there are different registration and orientation timelines. Hospital placements are open to all MSU students and are incredibly competitive. Registration usually fills up within 12 hours of opening.

Sunday 1/4: Registration opens on servelearnengage.msu.edu at 12:01 a.m.

TBD: Hospital placements have their own criminal background check process, orientations, and other pre-service requirements detailed in the position requirements after students register.

Student Registration

Students will register for community engaged learning placements that align with their availability and interests through the MSU's Serve. Learn. Engage! database (servelearnengage.msu.edu). Because students will select their own placement, the CCEL cannot guarantee a predetermined number of students who will serve with community partners for the semester until after registration has closed. A final list of students who have completed registration, criminal background check process, and our required online orientation will be provided to partners on the date listed in the calendar above.

Important Forms

Materials for community partners to engage community engaged learning students will be available before each semester. Interested organizations must submit completed position descriptions each semester and a signed Memorandum of Understanding position on an annual basis.
