Our Program

Since 1817, the University of Michigan has continued its long tradition of excellence. Its Medical School was the first medical school in the United States to own and operate its own hospital, among the first major medical schools to admit women, and the first major medical school to teach science-based medicine.

The Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program is built upon this strong foundation and will prepare you for any career path.

Mission - To advance the health and well-being for all.

MICHIGAN MEDICINE STATS 2019-2020

Curriculum

Our curriculum is evenly distributed between Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Residents alternate between Internal Medicine and Pediatric rotations every three blocks (on average). After completing a 12-month internship, Med-Peds residents take on supervisory roles in inpatient and outpatient settings identical to the responsibilities assumed by senior residents in the categorical programs. During the remaining three years of training, our residents have a balanced educational experience between general and subspecialty Internal Medicine and Pediatrics in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

Ambulatory Care and Primary Care

Distinct from our robust continuity clinic experiences, we have developed Med-Peds ambulatory rotations to complement ambulatory experiences offered in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Learn more.

Exposure to Primary Care is an essential component of our educational program that is relevant to all residents whether they ultimately pursue careers in Primary Care, Hospital Medicine, or Sub-specialty Practice. Learn more.

Global Health and Health Disparities

Meaningful engagement to improve the health of our communities is an essential component of our training program. Some of our residents have wished to expand their exposure and impact outside of our local community and have pursued immersion experiences across the United States, as well as internationally.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We have a deep commitment to social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion. Learn more.

Scholarly Activities

To further complement our clinical experiences, each of our residents is required to complete a research project during his/her training. The results of these projects are presented at the research symposia in Department of Internal Medicine and Department of Pediatrics. Learn more.

Honors and Awards

We congratulate our residents for their efforts to advance medicine. Learn more.

Clinical Simulation
