Since its inception in 2002, our Hospital Medicine Program has grown to approximately 130 faculty and staff dedicated to inpatient general medicine, teaching, research, and administrative responsibilities, all centered on inpatient care.
Our clinical programs continuously innovate and span the University Hospital, C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital, and the Ann Arbor VA Health System located two miles from the main campus. In addition to caring for complex general medical patients on general wards, a subset of faculty also care for subspecialty populations including patients with renal or bone-marrow transplants, and/or hematologic malignancies. These partnerships with subspecialties and unique areas, are part of what makes Hospital Medicine at Michigan so special.
With the growing footprint of hospitalists at Michigan Medicine and expanding roles of faculty in the tripartite mission of clinical care, research, and education, the Division of Hospital Medicine was formed in July of 2017. The Division is the fourth largest in the Department of Internal Medicine and is the first to be formed in over 40 years.
With over six distinct clinical service lines, a dedicated fellowship program in Hospital Medicine (that includes Quality Improvement and Research pathways), and educational activities that span undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students, the Division is a “Leader and Best” in Hospital Medicine locally, regionally, and nationally.
