As one of the oldest emergency medicine residencies in the country, the Sparrow/MSU EM Residency-Lansing, conducted within the Sparrow Health System and McLaren-Greater Lansing, has a long and vibrant history of excellence.

More than 35 years ago, Dr. John Wiegenstein began the arduous process of establishing the specialty of Emergency Medicine within the medical profession. Dr. Wiegenstein was the first president of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and worked for decades at McLaren Hospital. He served as faculty in the residency until his retirement and was a man of great vision.

As part of his legacy, he recruited dedicated faculty and established a collegial relationship between two healthcare systems in Lansing, Michigan. He also developed a long-standing relationship between the residency and Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and College of Osteopathic Medicine that still exists today. We have the privilege of being affiliated with Michigan State University, a Big Ten 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 our residency is one of community-training with university-affiliation to create physicians who are skilled in all niches of emergency medicine, able to work in any setting, and who care for patients from all walks of life equally. We aim to truly embody the philosophy of "Anything, Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime." Carrying that spirit, our graduates have traveled the globe, achieved fellowship status in many sub-specialties, become leaders in national organizations, program directors, department directors, Heroes of Emergency Medicine, and leaders in their communities.
