Academic Focus Ensures Up-to-Date Knowledge

AIMS has a long tradition of involvement in medical education. Because our staff members have extensive experience training future physicians, this keeps our physicians informed on the latest research, trends and technology in acute inpatient care.

As an academic hospitalist group, AIMS is actively involved in educating post-graduate internal medicine residents, medical students and physician assistants at the teaching hospitals where we practice.

Mohamed Siddique, M.D., founder of AIMS, has been Program Director of the internal medicine residency program at DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital for nearly 20 years. In addition, AIMS board members Marc Feldman, M.D., and Rajika Munasinghe, M.D., serve as Associate Program Directors. AIMS staff members serve as instructors in internal medicine residency programs at Henry Ford Macomb Hospital – Clinton Township.

  • AIMS continues to support the mission of undergraduate and graduate medical education in a variety of ways:
  • Residents and medical students make rounds with our hospitalists and receive hands-on training in acute patient care.
  • Our hospitalists conduct a morning conference series for residents and medical students discussing the management of unique cases seen on their service.
  • A noon conference series for residents is also offered in which our hospitalists cover a wide variety of medical topics.
  • AIMS faculty mentor research projects of residents.

Success of our teaching program can be seen not only in the quality of physicians we graduate, but in the residents’ pass rate on the certification examination for the American Board of Internal Medicine. For several years, out of 17 Internal Medicine Residency programs in Michigan, we were one of only two programs with a 100% pass rate.
