Our team, which includes the Program Director for Medicine-Pediatrics, as well as the Associate Program Directors, collaborates intensely to map out a path that encompasses your development as an internist as well as an individual. The greatest strength of the program is our residents. We have been fortunate to attract talented residents who, in addition to having performed in outstanding fashion academically, have tremendous qualities as individuals. The Department of Medicine has had a long tradition of excellence in the tripartite mission of academia including education, patient care and research. Our faculty members are among the best in the nation and represent a wide array of expertise extending from physician scientists involved in state-of-the-art biomedical investigation to master clinicians who are world renowned for their clinical expertise.

The University of Michigan Hospital is a state-of-the-art tertiary care center, which attracts patients from throughout the state as well as nationwide. Residents will not only experience the unique patient care within a tertiary care center like the University Hospital, but will also spend time in our VA Hospital which complements the clinical experience tremendously. To further enhance the ambulatory experience of our trainees, the Department of Medicine has successfully developed a series of primary care sites throughout Ann Arbor and the adjoining communities, which complements the experience of our residents. Your development as an internist will be guided by a full-time faculty who believe in the tripartite mission of academic medicine. We believe in providing greater responsibility and ever-increasing autonomy which is essential for your development. Integral components of the program that will assure your success include a mentoring program in which residents are matched with faculty members who represent the resident's area of interest. Your interest in our program is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to hearing from you in the future.
