Application and Benefits

We are privileged to participate in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) and accept all of our applications through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Application deadline is December 1.

Submission Requirements

  • Application (accepted ONLY through the AAMC ERAS)
    Family Medicine Education

Letters of invitation for interviews will be sent via e-mail once your application is received and reviewed. Interviews are held on Mondays and Fridays beginning mid-October and continue to mid-January. Interviews are not scheduled between Christmas and New Year's Day. Transportation to Ann Arbor, MI, is the responsibility of each applicant; however, we will be glad to provide housing for our out-of-town applicants. Staff and residents are available to assist with the logistics of the interview.

The Match

Our approach to the match is a bit unique among family medicine residencies. We feel that the match allows residents the opportunity to select not only their program, but also their continuity clinic. Currently we offer eleven first year positions and applicants may choose to rank the Chelsea and/or Ypsilanti continuity site. By listing each training opportunity as a separate match number, applicants have the opportunity to rank the training that best fits their goals.

Medical School Electives

We offer a unique month-long elective experience for medical students from other schools to work with us and experience family medicine at the U-M. Students work alongside our residents on our Family Medicine Obstetrics Service and our Family Medicine Inpatient services at the U-M Hospital and the Chelsea Community Hospital. These experiences give visiting students the broadest experience possible to learn our approach to delivering high-quality care to our patients and innovative education to our residents and students.

Salary & Benefits

Wages for 2014:
First Year — $53,407
Second Year — $56,318
