Founded in 1915 by Dr. Frank Sladen, the Internal Medicine Residency program was the first residency program at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. Throughout the years, Henry Ford Hospital’s Internal Medicine Residency has gained a national reputation for the high-quality clinical training of our graduates. As a result, we are able to attract and recruit high-caliber residents each year.
The Henry Ford Internal Medicine Residency program was one of 19 programs in the country awarded the Education Innovations Project (EIP) designation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The EIP designation, awarded to programs that exemplified excellence in medical education, afforded our Internal Medicine Residency program a 10-year ACGME accreditation. We have been at the forefront of the change in graduate medical education accreditation to the next Accreditation System. The ABIM board pass rate for the last year was 94%.
Graduates of our program are sought after for staff and fellowship positions, with a very high percentage entering the subspecialty of their choice.
