The Department of Medicine at Henry Ford supports the clinical, academic, and research initiatives of more than 300 physicians across 11 subspecialty areas of medicine. Government and public sources for funding the Department of Medicine’s education and research activities have been continually declining, and the role of private funding sources has become increasingly critical to all specialty areas of medicine. We would not be able to do all that we do without the generosity of others who support our mission for advancing clinical care, research, and education. Our staff is grateful for the many charitable gifts that benefit our programs and our patients.
