About the Residency
The family medicine residency program at Spectrum Health Lakeland offers our residents a well-rounded, quality residency experience. We are a small, tight-knit, community based family medicine program that places importance on education and personal life. Our residency is supported by a two-hospital system, which enables our residents the finest experiences in inpatient medicine, intensive care, emergency medicine, surgery, and obstetrics. Many of our hospital-based rotations are completed at our community hospital in Niles, Michigan while some are also completed at our central site in St. Joseph, Michigan. The continuity clinic is located minutes away from the community hospital in Niles, Michigan. Our residency program has received, in October 2019, continuing accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education for 10 years and has also received Osteopathic Recognition from the Osteopathic Principles committee of ACGME. Osteopathic Manipulation may be incorporated into the resident’s regular clinic days. The Family Medicine outpatient clinical experience is held one (1) half-day each week during PGY-1 progressing to three (3) half-days in PGY-2 and PGY-3.
