What We Do

Build health professional capacity by offering innovative products and services across six focus areas.

The Michigan Health Council is a solutions-oriented nonprofit organization on a mission to develop a premier health care workforce in every Michigan community. We proactively address the needs of health care leaders, professionals, employers, educators, and students through various programs spanning the education to practice continuum.

Whether it’s helping thousands of high school students and adults explore careers in health care, connecting and certifying thousands of future professionals for clinical rotations, or registering hundreds of thousands of candidate to job opportunity matches, the Michigan Health Council works every day to strengthen our health care workforce.

History

The Michigan Health Council has a seven-decade track record of developing sustainable programming for health care employers, educators, and professionals.

Our latest successes include developing a cooperative partnership across five organizations – two universities, two non-profits, and state government – to research and disseminate interprofessional education and practice models. We also recently helped Michigan win close to $3 million to pilot team care and education in Detroit, Grand Rapids, and Flint.

Other successes include improving clinical rotation matching systems, encouraging interprofessional education leadership, and convening stakeholders across sectors around common challenges.

We continue to work closely with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and our employer partners to pursue various federal and philanthropic funding opportunities.
