Patient Care

The Division of General Medicine provides general and preventive medicine for adults at the Taubman Health Center, VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System, and seven other clinics located in Ann Arbor, Brighton, Canton, Northville, and Saline. View all General Medicine clinic locations. In 2016, we saw over 160,000 patients, treating them in all aspects of their health including arthritis, asthma, diabetes, hypertension, gastroenterological diseases, infectious diseases, and heart disease, and also provided preventive care such as immunizations, health counseling, and sports physicals.

Research

We have one of the most successful research programs of its kind in the country. Our physicians are recognized as leaders in their respective fields and were awarded over $10 million in federal, industry, and foundation grants in the 2017 fiscal year. Additionally, many of our faculty serve in key leadership roles or are researchers at Michigan Medicine’s Center for Health Communications Research, Institute for Healthcare Policy & Innovation, Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine, Cancer Surveillance and Outcomes Research Team, and at the VA Center for Clinical Management Research.

Education and Training

The Division of General Medicine is committed to providing superior and comprehensive education and training to students, residents, and fellows, in the classroom and in our clinics. Our goal is to prepare all students to become outstanding physicians and leaders in their fields. In addition, many of our faculty members help guide medical student education, holding leadership positions at the U-M Medical School, U-M Internal Medicine Residency Program, and U-M Institute for Healthcare Policy & Innovation Clinician Scholars Program.
