About the Program

The Family Medicine Program at Ascension Genesys has been training Family Medicine physicians since 1971. We are an ACGME accredited program and have 39 residents. Our program aims to provide comprehensive training in both outpatient and inpatient medicine to provide a well rounded education that allows you to limitless opportunities once you graduate. We are affiliated with Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. Our residents see their own patients at the Family Health Center in Burton MI. This is a high volume clinic providing primary care to an underserved population of all ages. Training at the Family Health Center includes pediatric and adult medicine, women’s health, gynecological and dermatological procedures, prenatal care and osteopathic manipulative medicine. Our training also includes an on-site, integrative clinical health psychology program, which provides psychological services to our patients and conducts the Behavioral Science educational curriculum for our residents.                         

On the inpatient side of medicine, we have our own Family Medicine Service, which is run by the FM core faculty. During inpatient medicine months, our residents follow both clinic and staff patients, as senior residents facilitate functioning of the team. Our well balanced program provides you with adequate elective time to tailor your rotational needs to your future plans. We offer structured, protected didactic time with lectures from specialists as well as your core faculty. These include EKG reading, radiology, case studies, journal presentations, and board review. We also provide our residents with workshops run by faculty, where we do OMT, skin procedures, and gyn procedures. We take our resident feedback seriously and work hard to make positive change and improvement to our program every year!
