She loves staying active with sports and bike rides, and loves playing card/board games. Specific PM&R interests include MSK/Spine, ultrasound, and spasticity management.

Michael is from South Lyon, Michigan and completed his undergraduate training at Michigan State in Athletic Training. Michael graduated from Michigan State College of Osteopathic Medicine where he served as class president. His PM&R interests include prosthetics/orthotics as well as interventional spine procedures and musculoskeletal injuries. Michael would also like to incorporate osteopathic manipulative medicine into his patient care. Outside of medicine, his hobbies include BBQ smoking, weightlifting, Dungeons & Dragons, board games and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. 

Michael chose Beaumont-Royal Oak's program due to the supportive culture created by the attendings and residents. He felt that this program would give him the opportunity to become confident-not just competent- as a physical medicine and rehabilitation physician.

Wilhelm-Kurt

Kurt Wilhelm, MD

His interests in physiatry and sports medicine stem from his experience as a patient, rehabilitating a knee injury during his college football career at Denison University. He enjoys staying active by cycling, and rode his bike from Portland to San Francisco during some time off during medical school at Wayne State University

Kurt chose Beaumont-Royal Oak for the team-centered atmosphere among residents, and an approachable faculty that valued each residents academic interests. 


PGY-2

Bazil_Timothy

Timothy Bazil, DO

Tim graduated from MSU in neuroscience. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and dedicated to his work and never fails to help a fellow co-resident out. His perfectly coiffed hair makes him easy to spot around the hospital. Off work, you’ll often find him booking a tee time. He loves to ski, play the guitar, and drive his bright blue muscle car - his beloved Mustang.   

Tim chose Beaumont-Royal Oak for the broad curriculum, high patient volume and diversity, and the balance of dynamic instruction and autonomy. The residents work cohesively, making workdays enjoyable. 


Garelik_Lauren

Lauren Garelik, DO

Do not judge her by her initial (L.A.G.) because she certainly does not "lag" behind anyone in this residency. She is one of the most active residents in our program. Whether it's golf, soccer or wake surfing, Lauren is always ready to participate and compete. She is a Spartan for life - Go Green! Go White! Her chocolate soufflé is the best in the game, but her specialty banana bread is her real claim to fame.

Lauren chose Beaumont-Royal Oak for the close-knit working relationship between attendings and residents.


Lou_Jesse

Jesse Lou, MD

Most of the world is his home as he’s lived in Taiwan, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Boston, and now Royal Oak, Michigan. He is a mediocre beach volleyball player but always willing to put forth his best efforts. He enjoys purchasing kombucha in bulk from Costco, delusional in his thinking that it is the best available. He relies heavily on charm with decent amounts of success. His life revolves around Peloton, but his true passion is eating frivolously.

Jesse chose Beaumont-Royal Oak for the excellent musculoskeletal training, tight knit learning environment, and integrated internship year.


Schumaker_Alex

Alex Schumaker, MD

Alex majored in biology and math at Albion College before completing medical school at Wayne State. He has the longest commute to work, but enjoys renovating his house with his wife and dog, Molly. He has meticulous spread sheets of finances, and all his fantasy baseball teams. Don’t be fooled by his quiet persona. He is a “YES” man, always trying new things, ordering mystery beers, and will help a co-resident in need. He has gone skydiving, and loves to kayak and hike. 

Alex chose Beaumont-Royal Oak because of the high volume and clinical diversity of patients. He feels he will be well equipped with the knowledge and experience to enter any practice model he desires, and to pursue leadership roles within the healthcare field and community.


PGY-3

Allos_Angelo

Angelo Allos, MD

Angelo received his undergraduate degree in biology at Oakland University, and then earned his medical degree at the American University of the Caribbean in St. Maarten. Interestingly, he was born at Beaumont-Royal Oak and is now coming full circle to complete his residency here. Angelo loves to golf whenever the weather allows, and spends most of his free time on fantasy football in the fall and winter. Following residency, he plans to pursue a fellowship in interventional spine.

Angelo chose Beaumont-Royal Oak for the outstanding reputation and the opportunity to train with private practitioners, all while being close to his hometown.


Saleh_Hanan

Hanan Saleh, MD

Hanan was born and raised in the 419, AKA Toledo, OH. She comes from a diverse background of both Lebanese and Brazilian roots, which helped shape her into the person she is today (also explains her extreme love of coffee). Besides her passion for PM&R, she enjoys going on runs in the park, playing tennis, and kayaking. She’s also quite the party person, and by that, we mean in the kitchen at home baking amazing goods for everyone to try.

Hanan chose Beaumont-Royal Oak for the vast clinical exposure, well-rounded training, and personable faculty and staff, while still being located close to home. 


Swampillai_Jensen

Jensen Swampillai, DO

Jensen is a Canadian, originally from Toronto, Ontario. He initially crossed the border for medical school at Michigan State and is slowly traveling south in order to play outdoor tennis and basketball year-round. His EMG procedural skills will hopefully improve more than his tennis serve has thus far. He's interested in pursuing a fellowship in interventional spine after residency.

Jensen chose Beaumont-Royal Oak because of its close proximity to his hometown and family, great facilities and attendings, ample procedural opportunities, and private practice exposure. 


Ziske_Megan

Megan Ziske, MD

Meg is a native of Buffalo, NY and proud member of Bills Mafia. She moved to Ohio for undergrad at Denison, and medical school at University of Toledo before landing in Michigan. Despite growing up in a snowy state, she loves a beach vacation, especially in Aruba. She is known for having the most expansive and colorful wardrobe in the residency. If she's not spending her weekends at happy hour or brunch with friends, she heads back to Buffalo and fills her drives with crime podcasts and the latest pop music. 

Megan chose Beaumont-Royal Oak after seeing how easily she got along with residents, and for the access to private practice experience.

Her first career as a physical therapist lead her into the world of PM&R, and she has been loving it ever since. Outside of work, Stephanie loves to travel (30+ countries) and exercise, particularly running events at Disney!.

Stephanie chose Beaumont-Royal Oak for the strong musculoskeletal and EMG curriculums, the categorical internship, and suburban setting within a large hospital system. She has been impressed by the amount of autonomy she has in her PGY-3 and PGY-4 years to help her prepare to be an attending.


White_Lauren

Lauren White, DO

Lauren is a Detroit-area native who took a detour to Atlanta to get her MPH in epidemiology before returning to the mitten for medical school at MSUCOM. She never skips a workout, unless there’s a good happy hour to be found. She is happiest when outside, and loves cycling and hiking. After postponing her wedding due to COVID, she eloped with her (now) husband on top of a canyon in Moab, UT.
