The University of Michigan enjoys a reputation built on a history of firsts and bests, discovery and innovation and — when it comes to patient care — concern for the individuals and families we serve.

Our world-renowned patient care is provided by members of the University of Michigan Medical Group — more than 1,800 physicians (plus other health professionals) who practice in our three hospitals, approximately 40 health centers and 120 outpatient clinics throughout the state of Michigan.

The UMMG is committed to creating the future of health care through discovery of new knowledge for the benefit of patients and society, educating the next generation of physicians, nurses, health professionals and scientists, and serving the health needs of our citizens.

In treating our patients, U-M physicians adhere to four core values:


Serving the needs of our patients (current and future) is our first priority.


The complex needs of our patients are best served by working together to create excellence.

Integrity (Trust) 

We build trust with our patients and each other by adhering to the highest ethical standards, and a commitment to honesty, transparency, confidentiality and respect.


We continually search for new solutions for the problems of patients and society.

By making these values our highest priority, our physicians create a more patient-centered experience that leads to better outcomes, and helps us realize our vision to be recognized as one of the top medical centers in the world based upon our contributions and service to the world community.
