Welcome to Our Internal Medicine Residency - McLaren Oakland Program

  • A Message from the Program Director
    M. Ammar Hatahet, MD, MPH, FACP

    The mission of the Internal Medicine Residency program at McLaren Oakland is to educate the resident to be ethical, professional, competent and knowledgeable in caring for patients in both the inpatient and ambulatory setting. This will be accomplished by providing the resident with educational program goals that encompass the core competencies. Our program uses the ABIM Blueprint and the ACOI Path to Mastery as the foundation for the development and implementation of didactics and curriculum of the program. Preparing our residents to pass the certifying board exam is a primary focus within the program.

    Our program offers in-patient hospital and outpatient medical training in internal medicine and provides sufficient outpatient experience to prepare residents to practice community-based outpatient medicine. Our graduates typically pursue primary care or hospitalist careers; however, previous graduates have also been successful in matching into a variety of fellowship programs. In the past five years, our graduates have entered into Pulmonary Disease/Critical Care Medicine, Nephrology, Cardiology, Hematology/Oncology, and Gastroenterology fellowships.

    As an Internal Medicine Resident, you will work closely with the Fellows in McLaren Oakland's ACGME accredited Pulmonary Disease/Critical Care Medicine Fellowship in the inpatient clinical setting. Residents may also work with the fellows and faculty throughout the institution to produce scholarly activity. So far in the 2020-2021 academic year, 6 of our residents were accepted to present for the Michigan chapter of the American College of Physicians, one resident was published internationally in the European Heart Journal, and one resident was accepted for an international presentation at the European Congress of Endocrinology.
