P. Elainee Poling, M.D.

Class of 2021
Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine


Hello! My name is Elainee Poling, and I’m from Hudson, a small town in southern Michigan. I attended Central Michigan University as an undergraduate and Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine for medical school. Family medicine was a specialty that I was drawn to from the beginning due to its unique ability to care for patients across the lifespan, through a range of human experiences. This continuity and variety, along with an emphasis on health promotion and education for individuals and communities solidified my decision to pursue a career in family medicine. As a lifelong Michigander, I was drawn to the University of Michigan Family Medicine program, where I knew I would receive excellent training in both the academic and community settings, all while staying close to my family and support system. My interview day confirmed for me that U of M is a place where I will find support and encouragement throughout my residency training and beyond. My free time is often spent outdoors with family and friends, enjoying all the seasonal activities that Michigan has to offer -- camping, kayaking, skiing, making maple syrup, hunting morel mushrooms, and so much more! My other hobbies and interests include group fitness (from yoga to barre to Tabata), country music, and game nights.
