SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State University and Providence-Providence Park Hospital are establishing a new medical school campus in southeast Michigan.

The East Lansing school says Tuesday the partnership creates the MSU College of Human Medicine's seventh community campus.

Michigan State University's President Lou Anna K. Simon says in a statement the partnership "is the result of shared goals to educate medical students within a health care system that values quality and provides care to a diverse population of patients."

At full capacity, the College of Human Medicine plans to have a total of 60 third- and fourth-year students at the campus.

Providence-Providence Park Hospital is part of St. John Providence. The College of Human Medicine has community campuses in Flint, Lansing, Grand Rapids, Midland, Traverse City and the Upper Peninsula.
