Educating You Today
Our primary goal is to prepare you to be an outstanding physician and leader in the Med-Peds community. To do this, we draw from our strong institutional resources, diverse patient base, energetic faculty, and wonderful colleagues in the Med-Peds and categorical programs.
The University of Michigan is home to one of the top medical centers in the country, and its international reputation attracts patients from around the world. During your training, you will care for patients with a broad spectrum of disease from those with community-acquired pneumonia or RSV to some of the most interesting and unusual diseases seen anywhere in the world. We are fortunate to provide care for a diverse patient population, with patients representing a wide variety of ethnic, racial and socioeconomic backgrounds.
The University of Michigan Health System supports the University Hospital, C.S. Mott Children's Hospital, The University of Michigan Cancer Center, The University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center, and The Kellogg Eye Center, in addition to a number of satellite clinics throughout our community. We built a new state-of-the-art Children's Hospital on the medical campus completed Fall 2011. Our training in Internal Medicine is augmented by rotations at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare Center, which is located less than one mile from the medical campus. It is staffed by a number of faculty who have joint appointments at the University and VA hospitals.
The University Hospital and C.S. Mott Children's Hospital
Consistently rated by U.S. News and World Report as one of the top medical centers in the United States, these world-class facilities serve as referral centers for the entire state of Michigan and the upper Midwest of the United States. The institution attracts a broad and diverse patient population which, together with state-of-the-art technology, computerized medical information systems and strong ancillary support services, creates an outstanding learning environment.
We built a new state-of-the-art Children's and Women’s Hospital (C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital) on our medical campus completed Fall of 2011. This wonderful facility totals more than 1 million square feet with 348 patient beds housed within a 12-story inpatient tower. The inpatient facilities are directly connected to the 9-story clinic tower with separate connections to our University Hospital such that we continue to maintain seamless provision of care across all ages and disciplines.
Department of Veteran Affairs Healthcare System (VAAHCC)
Located just 0.5 miles from the University of Michigan Medical Center, the VAAHCC is a major referral institution within the Veteran's Health Agency. It is responsible for providing primary, secondary and tertiary care to veterans residing in the lower peninsula of Michigan and also Northwestern Ohio. A new clinical addition, which houses the intensive care units, a new medical procedures unit and all general medicine and ambulatory specialty clinics opened in May 1999. More than 2,700 patients are admitted annually to the Medicine service. All of the attending staff physicians are full-time faculty members of the University of Michigan Medical School, with full representation of all subspecialties.
World-class opportunities and options in a supportive, caring environment -- that's what you'll find in our program. We hope you will come take a look at what we can offer you!
