The University of Michigan Health System (UMHS) is a premiere organization with an exceptional reputation for care. For more than 160 years, our work in medicine has had an enduring influence on the lives of patients, students and faculty through our ability to create the latest medical knowledge and put it into practice every day.
UMHS includes three hospitals, including the new C.S. Mott Children's Hospital and Von Voigtlander Women's Hospital, approximately 40 health centers and 120 outpatient clinics, the U-M Medical School and its Faculty Group Practice, the U-M School of Nursing and the Michigan Health Corp.
Each year, we treat more than one and a half million outpatients, provide 43,000 hospital visits, conduct thousands of scientific research projects and educate the next generation of medical professionals through our top-ranked programs.
UMHS values respect, compassion, trust, integrity, efficiency and leadership. A reputation such as ours is built on a history of discovery and innovation, and—when it comes to patient care—the highest concern for the individuals and families we serve. Our research programs are fully accredited by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs. Accreditation results in greater emphasis on quality, stronger protections for research participants and increased public trust in research and its findings.
At Michigan, I have been given full authority and resources to develop the
Department of Dermatology into what is recognized as one of the top programs in the U.S. It is for this reason that I have remained at Michigan as the longest sitting Chair in the Medical School.
