Department of Surgery faculty perform more than 16,000 operative cases each year, and serve patients across Michigan Medicine, U-M's academic medical center, including at these clinical facilities:
This 577-bed, 11-story hospital serves adult patients. It includes an expanding selection of operating rooms with new features, such as surgical positioning systems, 3D image-guided navigation systems, and advanced robotics.
This 348-bed hospital re-opened in 2011 and serves children, women, and their families. Among its special features are a Bone Marrow Transplant suite and three intensive care units with private rooms.
Opened in 2007, this specialty center serves as the central hub for coordinating and delivering cardiovascular care. It's home to several nationally known programs for heart conditions, strokes, and vascular conditions.
This center is made up of twenty-seven clinics that specialize in 27 different cancers. The center works with the NCI for exploring recently developed cancer therapies and works with other Big Ten universities to further cancer research.
Surgery faculty treat veterans for both inpatient and outpatient procedures at this surgical facility, which offers a Community Living Center for those with extended care needs, as well as ample space for acute care needs.
Department of Surgery faculty manage more than 20 labs or research programs, making use of more than 50,000 square feet of research space — more than many entire medical schools.
Within the U-M Medical School, faculty and trainees benefit from an extensive research infrastructure, including 12 biomedical research core facilities covering metabolomics, microscopy and image analysis, proteomics, and more. The Department of Surgery also manages additional shared resources in flow cytometry to ensure that investigators have quick access to the tools they need.
THE A. ALFRED TAUBMAN BIOMEDICAL SCIENCE RESEARCH BUILDING
This modern glass-and-steel landmark marks the southern entrance to the medical campus, and houses laboratories and administrative offices organized by theme rather than department, in order to encourage scientific collaboration.
This 28-building former Pfizer pharmaceutical campus now serves as a center for interdisciplinary research at U-M, including in the domains of cardiovascular health, health services, translational oncology, and biointerfaces.
MEDICAL SCIENCE RESEARCH BUILDINGS
These buildings contain 142,547 square feet of lab space to support the University of Michigan Medical School, in addition to numerous office and meeting spaces for the school.
Education & Training Facilities
These advanced education and training facilities are designed to help students enrich their learning and to provide quality medical knowledge to the Michigan Medicine community.
Students and trainees can hone their skills in the advanced Clinical Simulation Center, an American College of Surgeons-certified Level 1 training center that provides adult, pediatric, procedural, and surgical simulators.
In 2015, the Medical School completed a $55 million renovation of its medical education hub, the A. Alfred Taubman Health Sciences Library. It houses classrooms, collaborative project space, a library, and clinical training suites.
