The Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Fellowship at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak is a one-year program that is committed to offering an outstanding subspecialty training experience. It is expected that graduates will become active and contributing members of the orthopaedic surgery community and its various subspecialty societies. The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan is a 1,100 bed tertiary care and university-affiliated hospital in suburban Detroit. The hospital is ranked second nationally in total number of inpatient admissions (over 55,000) and in number of surgeries. Beaumont is recognized regionally and nationally for clinical excellence (for example, 100 Top Hospitals: Orthopaedic Benchmarks for Success). Coupled with its proximity to Detroit and the surrounding suburbs, the hospital draws patients from urban, suburban, and rural settings throughout Michigan and the Midwest region.

Under supervision of faculty, the fellow provides coverage to the NFL Detroit Lions, Corktown AFC, Detroit's Pro Am Women's Soccer, Detroit Tradesmen Rugby, and a variety of high school teams. At a minimum, one laboratory and one clinical research project are required during the fellowship year. It is expected that these projects will be presented at national meetings and published in peer-reviewed journals.
One position at the sixth postgraduate year will be offered to an approved candidate who is board eligible (or board certified) in orthopaedic surgery.
