Letters of invitation for interviews will be sent via e-mail once your application is received and reviewed. Interviews are held on Mondays and Fridays through mid-December.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and national recommendations, recruitment for family medicine residency will be done virtually this year. We anticipate all of our interviews and site tours will be conducted over a virtual meeting platform and applicants will not need to travel to Ann Arbor to apply. Our match list will be finalized and sent to our DIO by the end of January. Pandemic – permitting, we will conduct optional second look visits both virtually and in person in February. Second look attendance will not affect ranking and will only be meant to give applicants a chance to better understand our community.
Currently we offer thirteen first year positions and applicants may choose to rank the Chelsea continuity site, the Ypsilanti continuity site, and/or the Spanish Language and Community Medicine Track. By listing each training opportunity as a separate match number, applicants have the opportunity to rank the training that best fits their goals.
Medical School Electives
We offer a unique month-long elective experience for medical students from other schools to work with us and experience family medicine at the U-M. Students work alongside our residents on our Family Medicine Obstetrics Service and our Family Medicine Inpatient services at Michigan Medicine and St. Joseph Mercy - Chelsea. These experiences give visiting students the broadest experience possible to learn our approach to delivering high-quality care to our patients and innovative education to our residents and students.
