Looking down medical mile

Who We Are

In 2022, Spectrum Health and Beaumont Health integrated to create one system, Corewell Health. We continue to provide the same educational excellence that fosters innovation to always remain at the forefront of medicine.

Through our partnership with Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, Corewell Health in West Michigan offers 37 ACGME-accredited graduate medical education programs to resident and fellow physicians striving to meet their individual medical training goals.

Throughout training, residents and fellows learn in an immersive environment that nurtures each of our 5Cs—compassion, collaboration, clarity, curiosity and courage—and, most importantly, one another. Our values build a culture that allow every physician-in-training to thrive in residency and fellowship.
