Why Train With Us
Our mission focuses on excellence in clinical care, education, research and culture. The department’s Michigan Promise supports our faculty and trainees in achieving their full potential within a diverse and inclusive environment where all individuals can thrive.
We are known nationally for the quality of our training programs. Our team of over 150 faculty members across a wide range of surgical specialties will serve as your teachers and mentors.
Michigan Medicine’s role as a state referral center with more than 16,000 operative cases annually provides our trainees with opportunities to gain experience with a high volume of unique cases.
"I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to train at a program that perfectly balances excellence in patient care, teaching, research, and innovation. In the time that I have been here, I have felt a real sense of family among the faculty and residents, from my co-interns to the highest ranks within the department. For these reasons, I know that the University of Michigan is an institution that will always push me to be the best physician that I can be."
