Family Medicine Residency Program

About the Residency

The family medicine residency program at Lakeland Health 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 Saint Joseph, Michigan. The continuity clinic is located minutes away from the community hospital in Niles, Michigan. Our residency program has received initial accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education 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. Clinic is held one (1) half-day each week during PGY-1 progressing to three (3) half-days in PGY-2 and PGY-3.
