"Our greatest strength is our residents. We have been fortunate to attract talented residents who, in addition to having performed in outstanding fashion academically, have tremendous qualities as individuals." - John Del Valle, MD, AGAF, FACP
Welcome to the University of Michigan Department of Internal Medicine Residency Program. Our program is committed to your development as an internist, independent of whether you are heading toward a career in primary care or desire to continue your education with subspecialty training.
The Department of Internal Medicine has had a long tradition of excellence in the tripartite mission of academia including education, patient care, and research. Our faculty members are among the best in the nation and represent a wide array of expertise extending from physician scientists involved in state-of-the-art biomedical investigation to master clinicians who are world-renowned for their clinical expertise.
Michigan Medicine is ranked among the top hospitals in the country. It attracts patients from throughout the state as well as nationwide, and supports the University Hospital, C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, University of Michigan Cancer Center, University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center, Kellogg Eye Center, and Veterans Affairs (VA) Ann Arbor Healthcare System, in addition to a number of satellite clinics throughout our community.
Residents will not only experience the unique patient care within a state-of-the-art tertiary care center like the University Hospital, but will also spend time in the VA Hospital which complements the clinical experience tremendously. To further enhance the ambulatory experience of our trainees, the Department of Internal Medicine has successfully developed a series of primary care sites throughout Ann Arbor and the adjoining communities, which complements the experience of our residents.
If you have any questions about our program or community, please do not hesitate to contact us!
