Beaumont believes strongly that the selection of high quality residents for its graduate training programs is critical to our mission of providing the highest quality education programs. To this end, in compliance with Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) institutional requirements, applicants must meet one of the following qualifications to be considered eligible for matriculation into our residency programs:
  • Graduate of a Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), accredited medical school in the U.S. or Canada, or 
  • Graduate of an osteopathic school accredited by the AOA, or 
  • Graduate of medical school outside the U.S. with a valid certificate from the ECFMG, or 
  • Graduate of medical school outside the U.S. with a full and unrestricted license to practice medicine in a U.S. licensing jurisdiction, or 
  • Completed a Fifth Pathway Program provided by an LCME accredited medical school.

In addition, residents transferring to a Beaumont residency training program must submit a written letter of reference from their current program director which must include a statement of their current status in the program. The Beaumont Program Director must also speak directly with their current program director about this reference. 

Beaumont participates in the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) to select candidates for its residency programs. All applicants for Beaumont residency positions are received through the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). Candidates are invited for personal interviews based on their eligibility and selection criteria. Candidates for our residency programs will be ranked and selected according to a composite evaluation of the following and other criteria. Note the minimum criteria for each program varies. (See program specific criteria)

  • Minimum passing USMLE score of 210 or greater on Step 1 & 2 within one attempt
  • Minimum passing Comlex score of 450 or greater level 1 & 2
  • Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident—Visas are NOT sponsored
  • Graduation from medical school within the past 5 years (January 2014)
  • One year of U.S. clinical research experience
  • ERAS applications only—Application deadline December 1st
  • Strong letters of recommendation (three)
  • Interview ratings of personal attributes—personality, communication skills, motivation, integrity
  • Special attributes—medical school honors, research experience, community service 

At the conclusion of the recruitment process, a rank order list of candidates is compiled by the residency program director with input from their program’s selection committee. The rank list is then submitted to the NRMP. Each program established criteria for selection described in their program policies. If positions are not filled with the matching process through NRMP, candidates are interviewed and selected to fill open positions using the same criteria as those used for the matching process. 

Beaumont does not discriminate when considering candidates with regard to gender, race, age, religion, national origin, disability, veteran status, marital status, weight, or height
