I'm a Midwest native born and raised in the Chicago suburbs and just completed Med-Peds residency in Rochester, NY. I'm a board game enthusiast and also enjoy photography, electronic design and programming, and cooking. I got married recently and my wife and I enjoy traveling and hiking. We're looking forward to exploring the parks in Michigan and are trying to figure out our next international trip. If you've got a fun idea for an electronics project or need help with something computer related, please feel free to reach out!
I was born and raised in Pinehurst, NC and was very involved in theatre and dance growing up. In undergrad at UNC-Chapel Hill, I majored in International Studies, studied abroad in Argentina, and studied several languages. After college, I lived in Davis, CA for a year where I managed a farm-to-school program and taught cooking and gardening classes in the local schools. I then moved to Washington, DC and got my MPH in Community-Oriented Primary Care from the George Washington University. I attended medical school at East Carolina University in Greenville, NC and did residency in Internal Medicine-Pediatrics at the University of Michigan. I served as the Med-Peds chief resident during my final year of training. Outside of work, you will find me outside - either running, on my bike, or working in my garden. I also enjoy traveling, live music/performances, and spending time with my family, friends, and cats. I am very excited to be staying at Michigan!
I am originally from Albuquerque, NM, recently finished Internal Medicine residency at U-M, and am currently applying to Cardiology fellowship. I am particularly interested in heart failure, geriatrics, and patient-centered care.
When I'm not working, I love hanging out with my friends, which usually involves eating good food and drinking Michigan beers. Every winter, I make it a mission to get back to the southwest and ski in the Rocky Mountains.
Born and raised in Michigan. Completed internal medicine residency at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. Consider myself a U-M sports enthusiast and self-proclaimed foodie. In my spare time, I enjoy golfing, working out, traveling and spending time with my wife, Audri. We are expecting our first child in December.
I completed my chief residency year and residency at the University of Louisville. I have worked in outpatient medicine, student health, and hospital medicine since completing my training. I live in Dexter, MI with my beautiful son, husband, and pets.
I am thrilled to join the Division! I am originally from mid-Michigan and went to U-M as an undergraduate. After a bit of a circuitous route that included working on Wall Street, I attended Harvard Medical School and then completed my residency in Med-Peds at the University of Minnesota before returning to Michigan. In addition to practicing hospital medicine at the V.A., I am a global health fellow with the National Clinician Scholars Program. My research interest is applying tools of implementation science in resource-limited areas in Latin America. Outside of work, my wife is an OB-Gyn working in Jackson, and we have a young baby (Marie) who is 8 months old.
I am originally from Minnesota, spent a brief time out east, and have been happy to be back in the Midwest for the past four years. I am excited to continue to care for hospitalized adults and children. Outside of medicine, I enjoy running, exploring the several trails and parks around Ann Arbor, and cheering on the Wolverines.
I attended medical school at Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences in India and subsequently completed my Internal Medicine residency training at the University of South Florida - HCA West FL Consortium, where I served as Chief Medical Resident.
I am deeply passionate about teaching and academia, and my clinical interests are in Hematology-Oncology. I continue to play an active role as Vice-President in a non-profit organization based in India with WHO Initiative of Vision 20:20, engaged in screening and managing preventable blindness for the underserved population. My personal hobbies and interests involve playing the electric bass, basketball, exploring new cuisine, and spending time with family including my adorable dachshunds. I am truly excited about joining the Division of Hospital Medicine at the University of Michigan.

I finished residency at University of Michigan in 2010 and have been working at the VA Hospital doing a mix of ED, primary care, and inpatient wards. I completed an MPH in Health Management and Policy at U of M in 2014 and became Director of the VA Emergency Department in 2017. My interests include transitions of care and patient centered care. When not working, I am busy chasing around my three children (ages 5, 3, 1), enjoying anything involving great food, and rooting for Chicago sports teams.
I'm from the U.P.! I went to U of M for undergrad, medical school, and residency. I love to hang out with my family (Mark and Quinn)!
I am a hospitalist at Michigan Medicine and a recent graduate of its internal medicine residency. I was born in Milwaukee and grew up in Chicago, where I earned both my bachelors and medical degree at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I live with my wife and our cat. I am an avid film enthusiast and also enjoy traveling and exploring different places and cuisines. My clinical interests include medical education, optimizing medical decision-making while reducing costs, and heart-failure.
I grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii and have spent the last 12 years in Michigan between Ann Arbor for medical school and Detroit for residency at Henry Ford, recently graduated. My wife and I were recently married in May, 2019, live in Ann Arbor, and just returned from our honeymoon in Switzerland and Italy. We recently adopted a puppy who is taking up most of our free time. My hobbies, which have fallen by the wayside recently, include collecting, tennis, hiking, and travel.
I completed my undergraduate (2003), medical school (2007), and Internal Medicine residency (2011) training at the University of Michigan. After residency graduation, I took a position as a Surgical Co-Management hospitalist at Stanford University where I was appointed Section Chief in 2017. At Stanford, I studied and published papers in cost analyses for joint replacement patients and authored several review papers on perioperative medical complications. I have been an invited presenter at local and national conferences including Stanford's Orthopedic Grand Rounds, Vizient's national conference, and SHM. I have also been active in quality improvement initiatives focusing on perioperative care.
I come back to U-M with my wife, Dr. Shannon Rudy (UMMS 2014), who is pursuing her Otolaryngology fellowship in Facial Plastics and Reconstructive surgery (again following her across the country). In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, running, skiing, and reading, as well as spending time with my wife and our adorable, but misbehaved rescue pug mix, Maizey. I am very excited about being home and joining the Division of Hospital Medicine at U-M!
Arthur Taylor, MD
I am originally from Virginia Beach, Virginia. I completed my undergraduate training at University of Virginia and medical school at The Ohio State University before eventually coming to Ann Arbor for residency at the University of Michigan. I, along with my wife Hiromi and dog Leon, enjoy hiking and camping both around Michigan and throughout the US National Parks. Much to the dismay of my colleagues, I also continue to enjoy Ohio State football.
I just graduated from residency here this summer. You’ll currently find me working nights on the BMT/MHP service. I grew up in Indiana/Ohio and enjoy traveling, good food (especially cornbread), and my cat named Stinky.
I was born in the great state of Kentucky - just south of Cincinnati in a small town called Alexandria. I stayed in Kentucky for the first 26 years of my life, first attending the University of Kentucky for undergraduate and then heading to the University of Louisville for medical school. I was fortunate enough to match at the University of Michigan Internal Medicine Residency, where I met some of my closest friends. I thoroughly enjoyed my three years in Ann Arbor, however, I decided to make a move to Nashville. Right before moving, I met my now fiancé, Emily. After a year at Vanderbilt, I decided to come back home. I am passionate about medical student and resident education and how we can make the hospital a more positive learning environment. I also have interests in health care policy. In my free time, I enjoy living life with Emily and trying to tame our wild doggo, Blue. I frequently head back to Kentucky to spend time with my family. While I love the Maize and Blue, my first and truest love will always be the University of Kentucky Wildcats.
Kaitlyn Vitale, MD
I was born and raised in Southeast Michigan before bouncing around the Midwest for school – Notre Dame for undergrad, Michigan State for medical school, and finished up Internal Medicine residency at UofM this past June. To say that football Saturdays are a confusing time for me is an understatement! Currently, I am working the nocturnist job at the VA and applying to fellowship in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. My research interests are focused on Post-ICU syndrome and critical care outcomes, with a special interest in the VA patient population. Away from work, I enjoy spending time with family, doing any and all things active (yoga, backpacking, any pick-up sport), and traveling.
I am a new hospitalist who will be working nights with MFH and MSJ. I am originally from Farmington Hills, Michigan and have lived in Michigan my whole life. I attended Michigan State University for both my undergraduate education and medical school. I completed my residency in Medicine and Pediatrics here at the University of Michigan. I remain a die hard Spartan fan despite my professional affiliations. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, cooking/baking, hanging out with my newly adopted dog, Russell, and enjoying a beer on Ann Arbor's many patios during the summer.
