2. Medical Reserve Corps Member

  • Determines interest and availability
  • Obtains approval/permission from instructor/supervisor for absence, if you will be missing class or work time during your MRC deployment shift (coverage form to be completed)
  • Signs up for deployment via Shiftboard

3. U of M Medical Reserve Corps Program

  • Provides liability protections
