Stress: Protective Measures
Hurley faculty member and in-house well-being expert Brenda Lovegrove-Lepisto PsyD talks about protective measures that can help during tough times. During the intense Covid-19 time period, she is conducting wellness check-ins for any Hurley unit or group, with a particular focus on resident physicians and fellows.
The three-year Pediatrics Residency Training Program at Hurley Medical Center offers residents the unique opportunity to serve and learn from one of the largest and most diverse patient populations in the state.
Combined Internal Medicine/Pediatrics
The Hurley-MSU Combined Med-Peds Program is designed to give a whole-person perspective on human development and the opportunity to serve patients skillfully at every stage of life.
The Internal Medicine Residency Training Program provides residents with an exceptional opportunity to gain the skills, and experience necessary to pursue a successful career in primary-care medicine.
For Peds, well-being comes from helping others
'Do not think you don't have an impact in this world because you do'
Auriel Mouzon MD, Hurley Peds Wellness Chief, just helped her colleagues in Hurley's Pediatric Residency discover the rewards of helping others in the community. A food donation drive resulted in a $1000 donation to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, delivered Dec. 22, 2020, just 7 weeks after the drive began.
"I'm just so proud of everyone for opening up their hearts for this great cause," said Mouzon, who noted that a $1 donation can feed 6 people, thanks to the low cost methods of purchasing at the food bank.
"I just want to encourage everyone to become involved in community service," she said. "Do not think you don’t have an impact in this world, because you do. And as you are pouring into other people, you start to realize you are filling your cup too. It’s the most rewarding feeling and a way to stay connected to those around you during this uncertain time."
Diversity & Inclusion
LEARNER, COLLEAGUE & PATIENT DIVERSITY

Quality & Patient Safety
All rotations focus on quality, safety
At Hurley, our most important goal is ensure that every patient receives the best clinical outcomes, absolute safety, and exceptional service. We embed related measures into our every-day teaching and every-day bedside care. We openly share our quality data (especially important since, as a safety-net hospital, we don't participate in all of the hospital metrics systems out there, which often report a zero response as a negative and can be 1-2 years out of date).
