Family Medicine Residency Programs in Alma and Midland, Michigan

MidMichigan Health offers two Family Medicine Residency Programs. Both are unopposed, allopathic programs affiliated with the College of Human Medicine at Michigan State University.


The MSU/MidMichigan Medical Center - Gratiot Family Medicine Residency Program was created specifically with a focus on rural medicine. It is ideal for family doctors who are interested in the unique challenges and rewards of practicing medicine in a rural community. The intimate size of this program provides excellent access to faculty and all aspects of clinical care, plus the ability to tailor your training to meet your needs.


MidMichigan Medical Center - Midland Family Medicine Residency Program was one of the first programs in the United States to offer residency training in family medicine. It is a four-year, unopposed program with daily office hours all four years, training in office-based procedures and obstetrics, and an academic faculty ratio of 3 residents per faculty member. It was chosen by the ACGME & ABFM as a pilot program for a 4-year model of training, enabling residents to graduate with a robust medical knowledge base and ample clinical experiences. An “area of concentration” (AOC) allows residents to further refine their training to fit their specific future needs.
