Medical Schools
Beaumont, Royal Oak, Troy and Grosse Pointe are the primary teaching hospitals of the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine.  Beaumont Hospitals in Dearborn, Taylor and Wayne are affiliated with Wayne State University School of Medicine.  Beaumont Hospitals in Farmington Hills and Trenton are affiliated with the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Interviews
Personal interviews at Beaumont Health are highly recommended. Personal visits permit an applicant to gain a firsthand view of the program as well as the health system and its resources. At the same time, interviews provide the faculty with an opportunity to assess the individual attributes and aspirations of the applicant. Interviews are scheduled by invitation only by the appropriate program director after review of all credentials.

Appointments
Appointments to the residency and fellowship programs are made for one year. Beaumont Health renews resident appointments annually, enabling the resident to fulfill training requirements specified by the respective American boards. Annual renewals are contingent upon satisfactory performance by the resident or fellow. 

Wellness

Beaumont Health is committed to the health and wellness of all residents and fellows.  The Director of Physician Wellness works with residents to address their needs for continued well-being through support, resource development and programming.

No smoking policy
Beaumont Health provides a nicotine-free and smoke-free environment.  The use of tobacco and electronic cigarettes is not allowed on any Beaumont property.  It does not appoint residents and fellows who use products containing nicotine. The nicotine test will be administered as part of the pre-employment health screen. Testing positive is a failure to meet the conditions of employment and considered a violation of the employment contract and Match agreement. Applicants who test positive for nicotine will not be allowed to start their program. 

Drug testing
All prospective residents and fellows are subject to drug testing, including testing for nicotine, during the pre-placement physical.  All contracts provided to residents and fellows are conditional upon passing a physical examination, which includes these screenings.  Any applicant with a positive drug screen (not attributed to a prescribed drug reported in advance) will be deemed to have not passed the pre-placement physical examination and is NOT eligible to enter the residency or fellowship program, or any employment at Beaumont.  This will be reported as a violation of the Match agreement.  

Flu shots
Beaumont Health employees who work in clinical and non-clinical positions are required to receive an annual flu vaccination no later than December 15th of each year. This applies to all residents and fellows, as well as physicians, nurses, students, transporters, volunteers, housekeepers, clerical, lab and dietary staff and employees in non-clinical positions. Employees may only decline vaccination if they provide documentation of an acceptable medical or religious reason. 

Licensure
All residents and fellows are required to be licensed to practice medicine by the State of Michigan. All PGY1 residents are required to obtain educational and controlled substance licenses. While practicing under an educational license, a hospital DEA number is used.  The appropriate application will be provided to you when you receive your contract. Licenses must be issued before training begins. This first application requires finger-printing and a background check.  Beaumont Health will reimburse residents for the cost of the educational license. This educational license can be renewed up to five times.  Advanced residents and fellows may apply for a State of Michigan full medical license and controlled substance license; a federal DEA number is also required.
