On July 1, 2017, Spectrum Health is proud to assume the ACGME sponsorship of the GRMEP residency programs listed below. On this date, all current GRMEP residency programs will transfer sponsorship to either Spectrum Health or Mercy Health Saint Mary's. The current rotations at both hospital systems will continue, optimizing resident educational opportunities and clinical experiences. In keeping with Spectrum Health's vision to be the leader for health by 2020, we are committed to improving our engagement with medical residents and fellows working in our hospitals and clinical sites. This new approach will enable us to expand our Graduate Medical Education programs to meet the needs of our community. We have been committed to Graduate Medical Education in Grand Rapids for nearly 100 years. Spectrum Health's Butterworth and Blodgett hospitals have offered medical internship and residency training programs since the early 1900's. We have a long tradition of teaching residents and medical students in an environment of cooperation between hospitals, residents and faculty.
