The University of Michigan Health System's Department of Family Medicine is a nationally recognized leader in patient care, education, and research. Since the Department was founded in 1978, our presence has exemplified the principles of family medicine and promoted them throughout the Health System.
Our Residency Program Residents' outstanding performance on the recent In-Training Exam and the 100% pass rate for residency graduates on the ABFM Certification Exam demonstrates the quality of Family Medicine residents and of the teaching and training at U-M.
The Department of Family Medicine provides a full-range of comprehensive, coordinated family-centered services guided by our core values: accessibility, accountability, and compassion. We maintain a strong commitment to community involvement, diversity, and the under-served.
Family is important to us. Our physicians will care for your whole family. This continuity of care means you will have a doctor who is familiar with your total health picture. Your family physician will know you and your family as people, not just as patients.
Our goal is to help prevent illness, maintain good health, and control disease. Family physicians provide prenatal care and delivery, well-baby, pediatric, adolescent, adult, and geriatric services, to allow your family to be seen by the same physician throughout your lifespan.
Our residency program is among the top programs in the nation today.
As the Department has grown the number of fellowships has increased to include Academic, Geriatrics, Integrative Medicine, MD-MPH, Sports Medicine, and Women's Health.
Our predoctoral program provides academic and clinical experiences across the four years of medical school, mentoring, elective courses, clinical preceptorships, and involvement in research.
Faculty development and continuing medical education, are supported and promoted for all faculty members.
