Our program is a dually accredited training site that prepares residents for certification by both the American Board of Emergency Medicine and the American Osteopathic Board of Emergency Medicine.

Residents participate in a rigorous curriculum shared between Sparrow Hospital and McLaren Greater Lansing.  The close proximity and affiliation with the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and College of Human Medicine offers a unique opportunity for our residents to participate in medical student education, simulation medicine, and hands-on procedural laboratories.

Sparrow Hospital boasts Level  1 Trauma Center designation, and includes Comprehensive Stroke Care with Stroke Unit, Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Units.  The McLaren Greater Lansing facility offers diverse community hospital emergency department care and has a major orthopedic focus.  Training in Lansing offers the best of both worlds in emergency medicine.

Sparrow’s  Emergency Department sees approximately 100,000 visits a year and has a dedicated Pediatric Emergency Department.    Sparrow is a leader in the Mid-Michigan area and we are able to draw high acuity patients from around the area.  McLaren’s ED volume is approximately 45,000 patients annually.

Our residency has been training residents for over 35 years and is located in the home city of the American Board of Emergency Medicine.  We have a dedicated group of faculty members who enjoy teaching and mentoring residents and faculty participate both regionally and nationally in emergency medicine education.

We promise to offer you outstanding training in emergency medicine in a tertiary care community based hospital environment that offers nearly all of the specialty areas that our patients could possibly need.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about our program and thank you for your interest in MSU-Lansing Emergency Medicine.
