From clerks to clinicians, it's the spirit of people caring, learning and sharing that provides the driving force at St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor.
The faculty at St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor are interested in the pursuit of academic excellence through the practice and teaching of evidence-based medicine. The practice of medicine in our independent academic center emphasizes high quality care of patients. The subspecialties are strongly represented with two Gyn/Oncologists, three Maternal Fetal Medicine specialists, four Neonatologists, two Reproductive Endocrinologists, and three Pelvic Floor Medicine specialists. All of the subspecialists are active in teaching, research and administration of the program. Attending physicians reside in-house 24 hours a day for resident consultation in obstetrics and gynecology as well as in neonatology and obstetrical anesthesia.
Residents, as well as medical students from the University of Michigan, University of Toledo, and Wayne State University play key roles in caring for all patients, including private patients. Professional camaraderie among residents, students, nurses and attending physicians is the rule rather than the exception. A strong staff mentor system and quarterly evaluations provide feedback and support for resident progress. Mentors act as guides leading us along on our professional journey. The mentor/mentee relationship is an integral part of our resident's professional development and socialization into medicine. Interns choose a trusted faculty member to guide and support them during their residency training, often with this relationship extending years beyond training.
