Michigan State University College of Human Medicine Department of Family Medicine

The Spectrum Health/Michigan State University Family Medicine Residency program is a three year program with six positions per year. Our program is unique—residents work in both an urban and rural settings, with rotations at Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital and Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, and Spectrum Health United Hospital in Greenville. There are two main outpatient clinic sites adjacent to each hospital. Residents will rotate at both hospital sites, but most of the inpatient rotations will be at United Hospital in Greenville.  Residents will be assigned to a clinic, based upon preference in their R1 year.  The Grand Rapids clinic has a more urban feel, while the Greenville clinic is a certified rural health center.
