Jerome Seid, M.D.

Jerome E. Seid, M.D., was born in New York City.  He has been with Great Lakes Cancer Management Specialists since 2000, where his focus is GU malignancies, but has a broad practice including benign and malignant hematology.  Prior to joining Great Lakes, Jerome lived in Pennsylvania where he had been in private practice in hematology and oncology for more than six years. 

Dr. Seid began his undergraduate training at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island before completing a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry at the University of Michigan.  Dr. Seid then received a Masters of Science degree in Toxicology from the University of Michigan, Rackham School of Graduate Studies.  He completed his Doctor of Medicine degree at Wayne State University in 1987, then moved to Chicago, Illinois, where he finished his internship and residency training in Internal Medicine at Northwestern University.  Returning to Ann Arbor, Dr. Seid undertook his subspecialty training in hematology and oncology at the University of Michigan, completing his studies in 1993. During his fellowship he was the recipient of the Outstanding Young Investigator Upjohn Research Award.   He remained on the faculty at the University of Michigan for a year before relocating to Pennsylvania. Dr. Seid maintained an active role as a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, teaching medical and nursing students, residents and fellows. 

While in Pittsburg, Jerome served as one of the Medical Directors of the Forbes Hospice. He has maintained this strong interest in the teaching of end of life issues to colleagues, physicians in training and students of medicine and nursing.  He is board certified in hospice/palliative care and continues with this mission as the Medical Director of the Henry Ford Macomb Hospice.

Dr. Seid is active on various hospital cancer and medical committees.  He is currently the Medical Director of Oncology at Henry Ford Hospital Macomb.  His hospital affiliations also include St. John Hospital & Medical Center, Bon Secours Hospital, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital West and William Beaumont in Troy. Dr. Seid is board certified in Internal Medicine, Hematology and Oncology and is a member in the American Society of Clinical Oncology, and American Society of Hematology.  Dr. Seid has been recognized by his colleagues as one of “The Best Doctors in America”.

When ask about his personal life Dr. Seid said, “My best work was to find a loving wife so willing to endure my long hours, high standards and sometimes irascible demeanor. My 3 children (a 16 yr. old son and twin 10 yr. old daughters) continue to provide me joy, and the continued opportunity to see life through their eyes - a welcome respite after a day in the oncology office.”

In spite of his many clinical responsibilities, Jerome is always up for new adventures.  Fly fishing is his passion, including travel to exotic locales like Argentina, Nova Scotia, Montana, New Mexico to stalk trout, salmon and other species.  Of course nothing compares to the wealth of fishing in Michigan, which he loves so dearly.  

This will be Jerome’s second year participating on the MSHO Board and we appreciate his interest and contributions to the Society.
