Family Medicine physicians were instrumental in the creation of McLaren Macomb, and FM remains an integral part of the hospital today. In keeping with this tradition, the hospital has offered Family Medicine Residency Training since 1955. This two-year program is approved for 12 positions by the AOA. Many residents complete a Family Medicine Emphasis Internship; other AOA internships will also meet prerequisites.
Our full-time faculty includes FM Program Director, Patricia Florence, D.O. Additional teaching faculty include Andrew Adair, DO; Joseph Lajoie, DO; Bernadette Lawless, DO; and Patrick McClellan, DO. Other core faculty for our program include:
Thomas Zima, DO - OB/Gyn

Douglas Kubek, DO - ENT/FPS
John Kazmierski, DO - Cardiology
Peter Ajluni, DO - Office Orthopedics
Julie Burnham, DO - Neurology

Family First, the FM resident ambulatory clinic, is a 4500 square-foot facility located just minutes from the main hospital. Under the supervision of board-certified faculty, interns and residents benefit from true continuity experiences by providing longitudinal care to their own panel of patients. Clinical Facilities include on-site x-ray, laboratory services, procedure room and OMT rooms. In addition, FM residents staff the MCGH Mobile Outreach Clinic, a fully equipped clinic on wheels that provides quality health care to underserved populations in our community.
NEW THIS YEAR: Our FM trainees can opt for a concentrated area of study to obtain supplemental learning experiences which are incorporated into PGY 1, 2 and 3. Current areas of focused study include Womens Health, Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine and Sports Medicine, however, other plans will be developed as need arises. Call 800-822-5940 to find out more about these learning opportunities and how they can benefit you once you begin your own FM practice.
Educational programming includes regularly scheduled lectures and journal clubs geared toward Family Medicine. Residents also participate in Didactic Days through the Statewide Campus System.
