Thank you for your interest in the Family Medicine Program at Ascension Genesys!
I would like to introduce myself, as I am the Program Director for Family Medicine, Marissa Rogers, DO. I have lived in Michigan most of my life, growing up in the Rochester Hills area(southeast MI). I stayed in the Rochester area, attending Oakland University for my undergraduate training, until medical school took me to East Lansing, where I trained at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. During my clinical years of medical school, I was fortunate to be based at Genesys where I quickly learned I wanted to continue on with the Family Medicine Program as a resident. After graduating from residency, I started in private practice in northern MI, for a couple years, before coming back to Genesys to take on a core faculty position. After a couple years of working as full time faculty, I took on the Program Director role in 2011. Currently, I serve as the President for the Michigan Association of Osteopathic Family Physicians, am active on the Committee for Education and Evaluation for ACOFP, and enjoy speaking at both state and national conferences. Outside of work, I have 4 children- Vaughn, Colton, Dawson, and Rowynn, who keep me busy with football games, wrestling, track meets, dance class, band concerts and video games! When I have a moment for me, I enjoy traveling to new places, trying new foods, and catching up with family and friends.
I truly love teaching and the specialty I chose! My job is so rewarding and every day is a new adventure! I work with some of the most dedicated faculty physicians who inspire me to work harder, create change, and improve our program to make it the best! We love mentoring our residents over their 3 years of residency and feel privileged to share in their growth and development, both professionally and personally. It is an honor to lead our future docs in their graduate medical training. Our 39 residents truly put the ‘family’ in Family Medicine. They are what makes our program so special. Their dedication, commitment, and compassion for patient care and teaching comes through as they take care of our Family Health Center patients at both our outpatient office and on our Family Medicine inpatient service. We have a large program with a very ‘small program feel’ in that each resident contributes to the success of our program and everyone works together, along with faculty, as a tight knit group with the goal of strong education and quality care at the forefront. Thank you so much for your interest in our program; we sincerely hope to meet you in person and show you our amazing Family Medicine Residency!
