Saginaw — The Central Michigan University medical school will expand in Saginaw with a $12 million construction project for clinics and a neuroscience center.

The university said Thursday its trustees approved the plan that includes internal medicine and senior health care clinic facilities connected to St. Mary’s of Michigan Medical Center. Classroom space and auditorium will also be renovated. Construction will start in spring 2015 and is set to finish in summer 2016.

The university’s medical school classes began in 2013.

A $25 million educational building is already under construction on the campus of Covenant HealthCare. Classes are scheduled to begin there June 6.
