It is the mission of the Division of Internal Medicine of Henry Ford Macomb Hospital to provide qualified physicians with a high-quality graduate training program that will enable them to (a) practice the specialty of Internal Medicine, (b) to enter into training in an subspecialty, and/or (c) enter into an academic career in the specialty of internal medicine.

This program focuses on inpatient training with more hospital-based rotations, including the complete range of subspecialty opportunities available at Henry Ford Hospital. This training and experience will prepare the physician for the certification examination in internal medicine. Education, not service, is the primary purpose of this residency program. The graduation of well-trained, well-rounded, competent, compassionate Internal Medicine physicians is our priority.
