The Internal Medicine Residency Program began at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1946. It has an established physician education program that is academically rigorous but different from traditional university programs. The program has prided itself on the training of physicians competent in practicing adult medicine who have also developed special skills necessary to practice in the current and emerging practice environment, including knowledge of population-based care, quality measurement and improvement, information management and technology, and teamwork and collaboration.
St. Joseph Mercy Hospital is a 545-bed hospital situated in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It functions as a tertiary hospital for transfers from surrounding community hospitals including St. Joseph Mercy Livingston Hospital in Howell, St. Joseph Mercy Saline Hospital in Saline, St. Mary Mercy Hospital in Livonia, and Chelsea Community Hospital. The local area is consistently rated as one of the best places to live nationwide.
In addition to core training in Internal Medicine, our program provides the following unique opportunities:
