Anna R. Laurie, M.D., assistant professor, has been named the service director of the Family Medicine Walk-in Clinic.
Dr. Laurie is a 2015 graduate of the Department’s residency program and a 2012 graduate of Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine. She also serves as the director of population medicine. The Family Medicine Walk-in Clinic, located within Briarwood Family Medicine, is open to all U-M family medicine patients. It is open from 11 a.m.–5 p.m. on Saturdays. On average, the clinic services 25-35 patients per weekend. In the past year, this effort, prevented more than 300 visits to the emergency department and countless visits to outside urgent cares. Based on patient demand, Dr. Laurie will lead an expansion effort to provide service on Sundays. Possible collaboration with other U-M primary care departments could lead to even further expansion.
Congratulations Dr. Laurie!
