Dear Interns and Residents:

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Osteopathic and Podiatric Medical Education Programs of Henry Ford Health System. The education of physicians is a vitally important part of the mission of our organization. We are proud of the tradition of excellence in education that we have established, and we are committed to providing high quality educational programs that will prepare you well for your future medical practice.
This House Staff Manual has been prepared as a guide to graduate medical education programs, polices and resources at Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital (HFWH).
As a new intern or resident beginning a training program in a new environment you may feel some apprehension. Rest assured that we will do everything we can to make your transition to our program as problem free and comfortable as possible.
The Medical Education staff is already familiar with many of you through the clerkship, application and credentialing process. Although your director or administrative director of medical education or residency program director will be able to offer help and answer many of your questions, the staff of the Medical Education Department is also available to you. The HFWH Medical Education Department serves as your personnel office.
We look forward to your participation in all aspects of the life of our institution, excellent clinical care for our patients, your best endeavor in the educational process, and a commitment to develop research activities in a community hospital setting.
Please accept our best wishes as you embark on this next phase of your career.

Dennis R. Lemanski, D.O., F.A.O.D.M.E.

Senior Vice President Medical Education

And Medical Affairs

The Osteopathic Oath

I do hereby affirm my loyalty to the profession I am about to enter.  I will be mindful always of my great responsibility to preserve the health and the life of my patients, to retain their confidence and respect both as a physician and a friend who will guard their secrets with scrupulous honor and fidelity, to perform faithfully my professional duties, to employ only those recognized methods of treatment consistent with good judgment and with my skill and ability, keeping in mind always nature's laws and the body's inherent capacity for recovery.

I will be ever vigilant in aiding in the general welfare of the community, sustaining its laws and institutions, not engaging in those practices which will in any way bring shame or discredit upon myself or my profession.  I will give no drugs for deadly purposes to any person, though it may be asked of me.

I will endeavor to work in accord with my colleagues in a spirit of progressive cooperation and never by word or by act cast imputations upon them or their rightful practices.

I will look with respect and esteem upon all those who have taught me my art.  To my college I will be loyal and strive always for its best interests and for the interests of the students who will come after me.  I will be ever alert to further the application of basic biologic truths to the healing arts and to develop the principles of osteopathy which were first enunciated by Andrew Taylor Still.

The Podiatric Physician’s Oath
I do solemnly swear to my God, on my honor, to those who have taught me, and by all things that I hold sacred, that as a practitioner of Podiatric Medicine, I shall abide by the following precepts:
I shall, above all, hold paramount the welfare of my patient, regardless of fee or favor, and I shall neither prescribe nor give any treatment or drug which will be detrimental to his well being.
I shall endeavor to uphold the dignity of the professional way of life, the aims of which are to render public service.
I shall cherish those who have taught me, holding high their principles and precepts and I pledge that I shall do everything that I am able to do to promote and to protect the profession of Podiatric Medicine and to aid my fellow practitioners.
In swearing to this oath, I hereby dedicate myself in service to the health of humanity, and I hold as my goal the relief of pain and suffering. If I keep this Oath, may I receive God’s guidance in the practice of my art, and may I enjoy my life in the respect of all men.

This House Staff Manual provides you with an introduction to the Department of Medical Education as you begin your graduate medical education training program. The manual is user-friendly, informative, and provides an explanation of pertinent educational support services offered by the Medical Education Department.

The Manual is a guide to policies, procedures and general information to assist you as a member of the House Staff. Aside from the requirements as outlined in your contract, the program reserves the right to make changes in content or application of its policies and procedures as it deems appropriate. These changes may be implemented even if they have not been communicated in this Manual.
