The Integrated Family Practice and Neuromusculoskeletal Residency Program at Botsford Hospital is a four-year program that provides the resident with a combination of training in Family Practice (FP) and Neuromuscular Medicine (NMM). The program provides an additional year of training beyond the requirements of the ACOFP and meets AOA requirements for both FP and NMM certification.
Family Medicine career offers physicians a vast array of opportunities. There is significant satisfaction in the privilege and challenge of caring for the "whole" patient. An accredited Family Medicine/OMM residency enables you to competently care for 90% of your patients' needs and the choice to refer to a specialist as needed. It is the only specialty that offers the fulfillment of caring for your patient from cradle to grave and also caring for their circle of friends, neighbors and family.
Other advantages include the ability to diversify and or specialize within the scope of family practice depending upon your personal interest such as in geriatrics, sports med, OMT, OB, etc. No other "doctor job" allows the flexibility to "mold" your career to your needs and interest. A family practitioner can care for hospitalized patients or develop strictly an office-based practice, work part time or full time, weekends or no weekends, and service nursing homes or not. It is a "family friendly" career opportunity.
In addition, this program is part of the Statewide Osteopathic Principles and Practices Consortium through the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MSUCOM). This Consortium meets for monthly journal club and lectures/laboratories to provide additional didactic and hands-on training with all member hospitals and MSUCOM.
