Student Rotation

Mercy Health is committed to providing the highest quality clinical experience and to coordinate student schedules to ensure the number of learners on a given service will not negatively affect our patient’s experience as well as the richness of the education.

Mercy Health – St. Vincent Medical Center is affiliated with the University of Toledo College of Medicine, Ohio University Heritage College of Medicine, St. George’s University  and Northeast Ohio Medical University for MSIII CORE medical student education. We accept our affiliates’ medical students for 4th year electives.

Students have reported finding short term housing options on and  Also, for multiple months, the EDGE 1120 apartments have short term options for medical students.  We can send you a list of housing options when your rotation is scheduled.
