The Pediatric Residency Program at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak is a three-year, 24-resident training program, fully accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). First accredited in 1967, the training program has achieved 53 years of continuous ACGME accreditation. Eight categorical PGY-1 positions are offered each year through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP). Applications for the program are accepted only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Additionally, four combined internal medicine-pediatrics residents are accepted each year into the Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program.
The pediatric residency program provides outstanding education and training for physicians who desire a career in general primary care pediatrics, pediatric hospital medicine, medical education, or one of the pediatric subspecialties. Our comprehensive program and balanced, varied curriculum develop pediatricians who have extensive knowledge of general pediatrics and evidence-based medicine, strong advocacy for patient safety and the health and well-being of children within their community, compassion for and sensitivity to diverse patient populations, strong leadership skills, responsibility for life-long learning, and commitment to the education of others. Our graduating residents are fully prepared for certification by the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) through the written American Board of Pediatrics General Certifying Examination.
The Pediatric Residency Program provides a strong, structured, diverse educational environment with rich, varied clinical and didactic experiences and robust individualized curriculum. We utilize the resources of Beaumont Health, which is both a major provider of primary care and a major tertiary care referral center; Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine; our culturally and socioeconomically diverse patient populations; our diverse primary care, advocacy, and educational communities; and the supervision and mentorship of dedicated academic faculty. Our residents learn in varied inpatient, critical care, emergency, and ambulatory settings in the hospital, as well as in community agencies and organizations, office practices, school settings, clinical research and quality improvement collaboratives, and creative out-of-state and out-of-country elective rotations. A broad array of clinical experiences and didactic lectures, conferences, and learning activities advances and refines the skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed by superb pediatricians. At Beaumont Health, these experiences are tailored to the unique educational needs of our residents.
