Michigan Medicine's Primary Care network serves Ann Arbor and surrounding communities, and is poised to expand. Our Primary Care physicians provide the highest quality, cost-effective, patient-centered care and population management, from preventive services to complex care management. Our network of General Internal Medicine and combined Medicine-Pediatrics physicians also serve as physician educators consistent with the education and research missions of the University. U.S. News & World Report ranks the University of Michigan Medical School's Primary Care program #5 nationally. The practice of Primary Care is at the core of Internal Medicine, and provides meaningful, lifelong relationships with patients who identify and trust their physician to guide them through their many health care challenges.

Our clinical practice currently spans across nine locations and is supported by the University of Michigan Ambulatory Care Services team of outstanding nurses and clinical administrative staff. In partnership, this team is committed to exceed the very high expectations of the people we serve and to emphasize the importance of offering a stellar patient experience. When individuals select the University of Michigan for their personal health care, they expect the leaders and best. For many, Primary Care is the initial entry into Michigan Medicine and offers an opportunity for our physicians to connect with a broad internal referral network of outstanding U-M colleagues engaged in a diverse mission of clinical care, research, and education. 

Mission

The University of Michigan Academic Primary Care Program is dedicated to serving our local communities by providing the highest quality cost-effective patient-centered care and population management, from preventive services to complex care coordination; and supporting and serving the education and research mission of the University of Michigan.
