The University of Michigan continuously evolves to meet and anticipate the changing needs of society, and is deeply committed to the success of our health system. One of the key strengths we have as a teaching and research institution is our breadth and depth of intellectual diversity and richness of resources.
This is an environment where you can explore new paths, rethink how we do things, and better yourself through knowledge and new perspectives. There is an energy here that can only be understood through firsthand experience.
A community comprised of students, faculty and staff from across the nation and around the globe, the University of Michigan campus is teeming with a wealth of perspectives that critically inform our understanding of our complex world. Few universities offer faculty and students our scope and scale of fields of study, and the interdisciplinary opportunities to push their ideas in new directions.
In fact, every year more than 17,000 people attend U-M's graduate and professional schools. Many others come here to share knowledge and soak up the collaborative climate on campus. We invite you to explore this unique gateway to achieving your personal and professional goals with our Leaders and Best at the University of Michigan Medical School.
Ann Arbor is an incredibly rich academic and cultural environment. As a faculty member at Michigan, I am continuously surprised and impressed by the quality of my peers, the scope of my academic opportunities and the spirit of teamwork across the University. I don't know of a better place for a career in academic medicine.
