  • The critical care units at Sparrow Hospital offer ample learning opportunities and procedural skills to our residents, and are staffed with a team of ED residents monthly with increasing responsibilites associated with advancement in the program.  
  • Senior residents complete a rural emergency medicine rotation to allow for a small community-hospital experience as residents prepare for future jobs.  
  • There is a fellowship opportunity for Surgical Critical Care at Sparrow Hospital.
  • A specific Academic focus during residency is available, which includes teaching at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and ACLS/BLS instructor courses.
