Meet Our Residents

  • Fantastic Unopposed Program

    “The Gratiot Family Medicine Residency is a fantastic program. The residency program has an intimate faculty to resident ratio which gives the residents innumerable opportunities to engage their preceptors and attendings with any clinical inquiries. The program itself is unopposed and provides residents with a “front row seat” to a hands on experience in each of their rotations.  The program is situated in a rural community which gives residents the exposure to a more varied clinical scenarios typically not encountered in metropolitan settings. The area is incredibly safe and very affordable with college towns and larger cities nearby. People in Alma are genuine and approachable, and I couldn’t have chosen a better or more competitive program than here at Gratiot."  - Kamil Cieply, M.D.

  • Supportive Faculty and Administration

    "I could not ask for a more supportive faculty and administration. It is obvious they are here to help you succeed in whatever your goals are as a family physician. As a rural program, you are presented with an extreme variety of patient issues. This program provides the experience and training to manage those patients, and does so in a positive atmosphere that is conducive to learning. I moved from Texas to Michigan for this opportunity, and could not be happier with my spot at MSU/MidMichigan - Gratiot."  - James Lyons, M.D.
  • Great Education and Work-Life Balance

    "This residency program embodies what a rural town in Michigan stands for: collegiality and hard work. The potential and the scope of practice of family doctors who practice in a small town are impressive and there is a huge need for them. The size of faculty and the number of residents in this program allow for an intimate and individualized setting that is perfect for education and work-life balance. I am amazed by the dedication of faculty and administrative staff to this residency program, as well as to the community of Alma and its surrounding areas. Their investment in resident education is evident in didactic curriculum that's built into our schedule. Outside of work, there are frequent social gatherings to allow us to hang with other residents and faculty" - Ji Enu Lee, M.D.
  • Exceptional Educators

    "The attendings are exceptional educators, but they are even better people. You will not meet a more engaged, kind, and approachable group. They are invested in up-to-date, evidence-based Family Medicine education, and with the breadth of clinical and procedural experience the area provides, I am confident I will be a well-rounded family physician. Faculty listen to us and value our input. Though each day is challenging, the environment fosters learning and growth in the presence of a warm community. We not only learn to excel in medicine, we enjoy every moment of it." - Anisha Kapoor, M.D.
  • Excellent Teaching
