As one of the oldest emergency medicine residencies in the country, the MSU EM Residency-Lansing, conducted at Sparrow Health System and McLaren Greater Lansing has a long and vibrant history of existence. Founded by one of the founding fathers of emergency medicine, John Wiegenstein MD, who served as faculty in the residency until his retirement, was a man of great vision. He recruited dedicated faculty and established a collegial relationship between two healthcare systems in Lansing, Michigan and a long-standing relationship between the residency and Michigan State University, both through the College of Human Medicine and the College of Osteopathic Medicine that still exists today. We have the privilege of being affiliated with Michigan State University, a Big-10 school with all the attributes including a College of Veterinary Medicine, while retaining the community training focus. This model has served our residents well.

The philosophy of the residency is one of community training, with university affiliation, to create physicians who are skilled in emergency medicine, able to work in any setting, care for patients from all walks of life equally, and who we would be happy to see should we ever need emergency care. This residency was also the first dually accredited (ACGME/AOA) Emergency Medicine Residency in the world. Our graduates have travelled the globe, achieved fellowship status in many subspecialties, become leaders in national organizations, program directors, department directors, Heroes of Emergency Medicine, and leaders in their communities. Lansing has served as the home of ACEP, SAEM, and ABEM, and the Executive Director of ABEM is one of our former graduates and a former program director as well. ACEP and ABEM have been well served by our graduates as well.
