An MRC deployment brings together members to effectively respond to a public health emergency or disaster. The deployment process follows these steps:

  1. Health Emergency Response Office
    • Determines that MRC needs to be deployed
    • Receives approval from Office of Academic Clinical Affairs leadership to initiate deployment
    • Notifies MRC Members (text, email, phone call)
  2. Medical Reserve Corps Member
    • Receives notification of deployment (text, email, phone call)
    • 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
    • Supports member while deployed
