Quality Education Begins with Quality Patient Care
Central to your clinical experience in the Midland program will be the care of your patient panel in the Family Practice Center. It is located centrally in the Gerstacker Building on the campus of MidMichigan Medical Center - Midland. It is a multi-disciplinary clinic with on-site care management, medical social work, psychological counseling, billing/coding and laboratory services.
About 10,500 patients are registered with the Center and we see more than 25,000 patients each year. Family Practice Center patients represent a wide cross section of the population in this area.
For your patients, you will be their personal family physician, addressing their questions, concerns and problems over the phone, via the patient portal and in your office. It also permits you to gain experience in the role you will most likely play in your future practice
Adult inpatient medicine service is staffed by a faculty member, 1-2 first year residents and a senior resident.
Direct contact with attending physicians represents the full spectrum of medical specialties (cardiology, gastroenterology, endocrinology, neurology, pulmonology, etc...)
Obstetrics (Labor & Delivery)
Area obstetricians are very supportive of family physicians. Family Medicine Residents are the only residents on the OB unit.
We have a proud tradition of strong procedural training that is spread across our curriculum. Procedure training is taught through a combination of longitudinal lectures, procedure workshops, half day procedure clinics, and one-on-one precepting of procedures during routine clinic time one to two times per month. We maintain a set of core procedures that all residents must learn but in addition have a list that the faculty recommends residents learn to meet the needs of their future practice.
