Our Mission

The goal of the DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital Internal Medicine Residency Program is to produce excellent internists who are able to utilize their interpersonal skills and knowledge gained in a clinical practice setting. Having a "home base" hospital allows working relationships to develop between resident and faculty physicians. Our program also encourages each resident to accomplish his or her career goals. Rotations and a complete range of fellowship programs are available within the Detroit Medical Center.
Program Description

DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital, located in northwest Detroit, offers a uniquely structured, accredited residency program in Internal Medicine. The well-developed curriculum has an emphasis on primary care internal medicine. The program has been awarded a four-year ACGME accreditation. While we emphasize academic excellence, there are ample opportunities for experience in ambulatory care, research, and clinical training.

The quality of our resource base, including patients, facilities and faculty, is unparalleled in the region. The program offers the flexibility to achieve individual goals while acquiring the depth of knowledge and experience required to successfully pass the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) certifying examination. We are proud that our ABIM examination pass rate was 100 percent for five consecutive years.

The program also offers:
  • Well-balanced call schedule with 1 in 7 night call
  • Innovative teaching methods
  • On-line monthly exams
  • P.E.R.K.
  • In-house board review
  • Resident Grand Rounds and Journal Club
  • Multi-disciplinary Medicine elective month
The Hospital

Sinai-Grace is part of the Detroit Medical Center (and part of Tenet Healthcare's national health systems), a comprehensive regional healthcare delivery system in southeastern Michigan. As a major teaching hospital for Wayne State University School of Medicine, the hospital hosts approximately 180 medical students and graduate students on rotation at any one time.

Sinai-Grace is the DMC's only general hospital and offers all specialty services except non-emergent pediatrics. The hospital's busy Emergency Department treats more than 60,000 patients each year, with the largest number of cases being cardiac related. Cardiology services include all surgical procedures except transplant, with four cardiac cath labs available. Orthopaedics and oncology are also core service lines, with on-site radiation oncology services and a chemotherapy/infusion clinic. Obstetrics care includes high-risk pregnancy management, maternal/fetal medicine and complete labor and delivery services. Critical care units treat neonatal, cardiac, surgical, trauma and medical cases. Specialty inpatient units include geriatrics, psychiatry, nephrology, obstetrics and rehabilitation.

The Staff

The Department of Internal Medicine is the largest department at DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital. There are 24 full-time medical faculty, as well as private attending staff, dedicated to teaching. All subspecialties of Internal Medicine are represented. Faculty are available to provide assistance in clinical decision-making, career planning and individual counseling. We at Sinai-Grace pride ourselves with our spirit of camaraderie and have an "open door policy" between faculty and residents. We feel this fosters professional as well as personal growth and development.
