Hello! My name is Raven Batshon, and I am from Northville, Michigan. I went to Michigan State University for undergrad and Wayne State University School of Medicine for medical school. While in medical school, I spent at year in Boston at Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health completing a Masters in Public Health. I love family medicine for the opportunity to build relationships with my patients and my community that is built on respect and trust. I see family medicine as the best way to serve a community through primary and preventative care, longitudinal relationships, integration into the community to best address a community's needs. Family medicine was the best fit for me to ingrate my passion for addressing health inequities in underserved and marginalized communities while also providing excellent patient care.
I am a University of Michigan Family Medicine Resident at the Ypsilanti Health Center. I was extremely drawn to the U-M Family Medicine program for many reasons. I feel very fortunate to be surrounded by residents, faculty, and staff that have the same goals of providing excellent patient and community centered care to our patients. I was really drawn to U-M for the incredible amount of educational and research opportunities as well as the incredible people within the department and the entire University.
In my free time, I love cooking and baking for friends and family, completing paint by numbers (discovered during quarantine), taking long drives to listen to podcasts, going to country concerts in the summers, and exploring new restaurants in Ann Arbor and Detroit.
