COVID-19 Vaccines

At the time of publishing this statement, McLaren Health Care is not currently mandating the COVID-19 vaccine for its employees. This is subject to change. Although the vaccine is not required for employment with McLaren Health Care, your training program may require you to rotate at other institutions that do mandate the vaccine. If you are unable to provide proof of vaccination, you will not be able to rotate at that site and therefore unable to fulfill the program’s requirements. If you have specific questions related to the program you are interested in applying to, please contact the residency or fellowship coordinator.


All interviews in the 2021-2022 interview season will be held as virtual only.
