Sparrow-Michigan State University

Sparrow Health System in Lansing will have an unexpected PGY-2 opening beginning July 1, 2017.  Sparrow Hospital-Michigan State University is one of the oldest programs in existence. This is a community-based program that has the feel of both an academic/tertiary care center and a community emergency department.  Sparrow’s 68 bed Emergency Department is a Level I trauma center that sees approximately 100,000 visits a year with a 25,000 visit per year dedicated Pediatric Emergency Department.  The facility has an active Trauma Service, Pediatric Intensive Care unit, Comprehensive Stroke Care, including interventional stroke care.  Sparrow has a high acuity patient population and provides a high volume critical care experience.

Residents also rotate at McLaren Greater Lansing’s 36 bed Emergency Department which serves approximately 45,000 patients annually and offers exposure to pathology typically seen in a community hospital environment. This facility complements the main site very well.  At this site, our residents essentially serve as the trauma team, the stroke team and pediatric intensivist.  This allows our residents to gain experience managing these types of critical patients without immediate specialty backup. This setting provides a great exposure to “bread and butter” emergency medicine.

The program is affiliated with Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and College of Human Medicine offering a unique opportunity for our residents to participate in medical student education, simulation medicine, and hands-on procedural laboratories.

For consideration, applicants should submit the following:
