Allow me to introduce to you the Corewell Health East (Wayne) Family Medicine Residency Program. We are Corewell Health’s biggest and oldest Family Medicine residency program, and the first in southeast Michigan. Our tradition of serving our community started well before Family Medicine became an accredited specialty in 1969. Our program rests on a strong infrastructure to support our curriculum. Housed in a 200-bed community hospital, the Corewell Health East (Wayne) Family Medicine Residency program is part of Michigan’s largest healthcare system – Corewell Health. We are a full-service community teaching hospital offering all the benefits of a major tertiary hub just miles away. As an unopposed program, our residents rotate through every floor of the Wayne hospital as primary learners. In addition to our adult and newborn services at Wayne Hospital, our Family Medicine residents also lead the pediatrics service at Corewell Health Dearborn Hospital. Our residents’ obstetrics experience is bolstered by our Maternal Fetal Medicine fellowship. Our major affiliation with Wayne State University School of Medicine, a top research center, underscores the academic amenities available to our program and its residents. We are also fortunate to have affiliations with Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine and Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Our program’s mission is to teach compassionate, full scope, extraordinary family medicine to all our learners while caring for diverse patients every day. In addition to our rigorous academic standard, we are a community program with a strong connection to our community. The Corewell Health Wayne Hospital campus provides care to a remarkably diverse patient population, including the health system’s most socioeconomically challenged communities. Our residency program has the privilege of serving Wayne, Westland, Inkster and beyond. We deliver excellent care to our patients every day, but our commitment to our communities extends well beyond our clinic walls. We have close partnerships with our local schools and community organizations such as Zaman International and C-ASSIST. It is impossible to care for a community from the office alone, which is why it is important for us to help our patients by directly addressing their complex social needs through volunteerism and advocacy.

Our program is always adapting as Family Medicine and healthcare continue to evolve. One thing that doesn't change, however, is our culture. Our culture is built on a strong set of core values: service to our patients and community, learning and growth, educational excellence, teamwork, and respect for all. Our strong culture provides an amazing environment where our residents are able to focus on learning and personal growth, making it easy to pursue their career interests. One of my priorities is to support our residents in achieving their career goals, whatever they may be. We have graduates practicing in virtually any type of practice setting you can think of.

As a graduate myself, there are so many things about this program that I am proud of. I encourage you to apply to our program and find out more about who we are!
