Marjorie Mendoza Almeda, D.O. completed her undergraduate degree in Anthropology-Zoology from the University of Michigan in 1994. From there she completed her degree in Osteopathic Medicine at the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1998. She then went on to complete her residency in Internal Medicine at Mount Clemens General Hospital (now known as McLaren Macomb Hospital) in 2001. During her residency she also completed a Teaching Fellowship through the Statewide Campus System of Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. It was during her residency that she developed her interest in caring for older adults and even spearheaded a house call program for Internal Medicine Residents to service frail, homebound patients. After her residency, she completed her Fellowship in Geriatric Medicine back at her alma mater, the University of Michigan, in 2002. After her fellowship, she continued to serve frail, homebound older adults as a housecall physician for the next 12 years. Marjorie is very excited to rejoin the University of Michigan community to work once again in the Geriatric Clinic and now as part of the Interdisciplinary Team at Huron Valley PACE in Ypsilanti. She is a proud mom of 4 kids (3 sons and 1 daughter) and stays very busy trying to keep up with all of them. Always a die-hard Wolverine, she enjoys Michigan football, traveling, and vegetarian cuisine.
