Thank you for taking the time to explore the Primary Care physician opportunities within the General Medicine division at Michigan Medicine. Michigan Medicine’s Primary Care network serves Ann Arbor and surrounding communities, and is poised to expand. We are dedicated to serving our local communities by providing superior patient-centered care and creating strong, long-lasting, patient-doctor relationships. The University of Michigan is consistently ranked as one of the best university workplaces in the U.S. Contributing reasons are the high priority that is placed on creating an environment where faculty and staff do their best work, and providing a place where faculty and staff’s contributions to making a difference, whether it’s locally, regionally or nationally, are recognized and valued. Please see below to learn more about the benefits of working at Michigan Medicine and becoming a part of our Primary Care Program team.
Access to a Leading and Nationally-Recognized Hospital

Access to and Collaboration with Specialty Experts
There are 20 clinical departments at the University of Michigan, which affords faculty and staff direct access to specialists and subspecialists, improving their patient’s experience and providing increased levels of care coordination. It also allows for a collaborative environment for all faculty, fellows, and residents to share knowledge and learn from each other.
Numerous Practice Locations
In addition to the Taubman Health Center (attached to the University Hospital) and the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System, our Primary Care physicians see patients at seven other locations in communities throughout Southeast Michigan, which include Ann Arbor, Brighton, Canton, Northville, and Saline.
Pioneering Initiatives to Improve Patient Care and Experience
The University of Michigan Medical Group has implemented an Association of American Medicine Colleges (AAMC) initiative, Project CORE (Coordinating Optimal Referral Experiences), to increase access to and efficiency of specialty medical services by improving collaboration and communication between U-M primary care and specialty physicians. Project CORE uses tools in the electronic medical record (EMR) to refine the referral process within Michigan Medicine. It streamlines physician collaboration by encouraging the use of eConsults and enhanced referrals, both of which are implemented and used by U-M providers.
Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+)
The majority of our nine primary care practice locations have been selected to participate in the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) model. CPC+ is a national advanced primary care medical home model by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that aims to strengthen primary care through regionally-based multi-payer payment reform and care delivery transformation. CPC+ seeks to improve the quality of care patients receive, improve patients’ health, and spend health care dollars more wisely.
