Family Medicine Inpatient
The program offers residents a unique opportunity to practice in both a local, unopposed community hospital as well as the tertiary care University Hospital. Residents care for patients with a broad range of medical problems and are supervised exclusively by Department of Family Medicine faculty.
One month in each of the second and third years is dedicated to night shifts on one of our inpatient services. This experience was championed and organized by the residents many years ago to concentrate call and allow for a healthier residency lifestyle. Residents work 12-hour shifts for two weeks at a time.
Residents work one-on-one with attending faculty from the Department of Family Medicine on our mother/baby service. They delivery patients who had their prenatal care in one of our family medicine clinics, and also provide care for their newborns after delivery. Senior family medicine residents also work with faculty from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The pediatric experiences take advantage of the resources, reputation and the tradition of compassionate patient care at the world-class Mott Children's Hospital, where residents work on the inpatient pediatrics service. Residents receive dedicated teaching from academic leaders in the Department of Pediatrics.
