Founded in 1915 by Dr. Frank Sladen, the Henry Ford Hospital internal medicine residency program is the first residency program at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. Throughout the years, it has gained a national reputation for the high quality clinical training of its graduates. As a result, we are able to attract and recruit high caliber residents each year.
The three-year American Board of Internal Medicine cumulative pass rate for the Certifying Exam in Internal Medicine is 95%
The Henry Ford Internal Medicine Residency program is one of 19 programs in the country awarded the Education Innovations Project (EIP) designation by the ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education). This is awarded to programs who have exemplified excellence in medical education and provides our program a 10 year accreditation (the maximum in all other programs is 5 years).
Graduates of our program are sought after for fellowship and for staff positions. In 2008, 80% of our graduates matched in their subspecialty of choice.
