Thank you for your interest in our program. Please take a moment to read the Welcome Letter from Dr. Kristin Hollander.
The mission of our program is to improve the health and quality of life for the people of West Michigan through the education of well-rounded internal medicine physicians. Competency, compassion, and empathy to our patients and their families are core principles to our mission. Using these principles, we strive to raise, discuss, and elucidate the important ethical, scientific, and economic issues involved in medical practice and patient care. Our graduates complete our program with the tools to effectively communicate with patients, diagnose and treat diseases rare and commonplace, and navigate complex health systems.
The Internal Medicine Residency Program at University of Michigan Health-West is comprised up of compassionate, hard-working, dedicated, self-directed, confident individuals who wish to provide primary care and inpatient medical services to patients in their communities. The program provides a comprehensive 3-year curriculum to enable residents to master the knowledge, skills, and abilities they will need for successful practice of medicine or to continue into a sub-specialty fellowship program of their choice. The program seeks to train highly motivated individuals who have expertise in management of medically complex patients for both inpatient and outpatient realms, keeping a keen focus on transitions of care for their patient through the system in which they practice. It is the aim of the program to produce excellent, well-rounded, independent practitioners who will be professional leaders in their hospitals and their communities.
