Alumni Relations

The Alumni Relations Program is a joint effort supported by the Henry Ford Medical Group and the Development Office. The program is the latest effort in HFHS’s long tradition of excellence in physician education. At the core of that education are the personal and professional relationships developed between physicians, staff, residents, and fellows - relationships that will be continued and strengthened through increased connection, communication, and engagement initiatives for our community.

Alumni Relations, in partnership with the HFMG Alumni Association, offers a wide range of services and benefits to HFMG Alumni. By connecting with the Association, you can stay in touch with colleagues and stay abreast of opportunities for professional growth.

In addition to meeting the educational needs of our senior staff attendees, these programs are an integral part of our house staff and medical student educational programs.

    Henry Ford also sponsors about 60 special CME programs a year on our own campus, as well as at other sites regionally, nationally and internationally. These special programs, which address a variety of clinical and research topics and share the expertise of our medical staff, attract physicians and other health professionals from throughout the region.
