The University of Michigan Department of Family Medicine presents high-quality modules on a broad range of clinical topics that are now free and available to the public. New modules are regularly added.  

Our education modules are made available through a partnership with Open.Michigan, a University of Michigan initiative committed to open content licensing and supporting the use, redistribution, and remixing of educational materials. Open.Michigan has reviewed this material in accordance with U.S. Copyright Law and has tried to maximize your ability to use, share, and adapt. 

These units were designed and written with the help of a University of Michigan Graduate Medical Education Innovations Grant. The authors include faculty from the University of Michigan, residents, and fellows from the Department of Family Medicine, as well as community practitioners.
