Welcome from the DIO

Mary Jo Wagner, M.D.Thank you very much for your interest in our residency programs here in Saginaw, Michigan.  We have a long-standing commitment to residency training with our first program starting in 1947.  In 1968, the community hospitals formed a medical education consortium that pulled all of the training programs together under one educational roof, with the clinical activities continuing at all of the hospitals in the community. We added medical students to the community in the early 1970s when Michigan State University College of Human Medicine began their school.  It was with great excitement that we are now part of the newly formed medical school, Central Michigan University College of Medicine, providing the majority of clinical opportunities for the students.

We have seven residency programs and two fellowships: 

The best part of the training in Saginaw is the large and varied patient population.  As the primary referral hospitals for patients from mid and northeastern Michigan, the breadth of patient experience here is unmatched. With fewer learners in the system, dedicated faculty and lots of patients, there is plenty of experience to go around.  Our extensive simulation lab augments the bedside training.

Please come explore our residency programs through these web pages and as we encourage you to join us for your graduate medical education training.
