Corewell Health is the new name for Beaumont.

Ophthalmology Residency, Royal Oak



The Beaumont Residency training program is a close knit community led by faculty who are fully invested in making each resident become the most well rounded physician possible. The attendings are leaders in their respected fields and well respected in the community and beyond for providing highly quality subspecialty and comprehensive eyecare. The resident clinic offers graduated autonomy both clinically and surgically which places each resident as the patient’s primary provider, setting you up for success in fellowship or private practice after residency. Having done two fellowships now, I can confidently say that the clinical and surgical teaching line up right up with the best programs, and residents are set up to match into competitive fellowships of all types.

Great program. Faculty really cares about developing you into the best ophthalmologist you can be with a high value placed on ethics, teamwork (within the field and between specialties), and high quality patient care all with a manageable workload.

Between its diverse and extensive clinic and operative experience, the program is second to none.

From alumni on Doximity

William Beaumont Hospital Royal Oak's Ophthalmology Department has a long history of excellence in producing competent and confident ophthalmologists, preparing them for general practice, and placing them in competitive fellowships. Beaumont Eye Institute has developed into a robust clinical and surgical training program. The didactic, clinical, and surgical curriculum offered at Beaumont would stack up against those at the top academic programs. As with an respectable program, the residency is busy and requires disciplined time management. However, our culture is collegial, and this makes for very enjoyable experiences during some of the busiest times of our career. If I had to do it over again, I would still come back and train at Beaumont.

From alumni on Doximity

As I reflect back on my residency experience at the Beaumont Eye Institute, I am extremely grateful for the excellent clinical and surgical training with world-renown leaders in the field. The graduated autonomy built into our curriculum has given me a robust knowledge base and the confidence to treat patients who present with various types of ocular pathology. Our didactic and academic conferences allowed me to critically analyze my surgical videos to refine my techniques to become safer and more efficient in surgery. Above all, residents who graduate from Beaumont leave the program as empathic and compassionate physicians because all of our attendings lead by example within the community.

Understanding the quality of one's training is difficult to do while in residency. It isn't until we're out and either practicing on our own or at another training program for fellowship that we can reflect on our knowledge base, skills and confidence that developed while in residency. The mentorship, teaching, clinical skills and surgical training that I received at Beaumont paved the way for me to excel in my fellowship and gain the trust in my colleagues, attendings, and patients alike. The graduated autonomy in delivering patient care instilled confidence that I am doing right by the patient and eased the transition to the next step in my career. Each attending at Beaumont is dedicated to creating confident and competent physicians and they do so by placing the residents in the driver's seat.”

Hassan Tausif, MD – BEI Resident Alum 2020

"Since completing residency at Beaumont, I've gained a strong appreciation for the quality of training that I received. BEI residents are immersed in world-class academic medicine as well as highly successful private practice. The result is an outstanding knowledge base combined with a practical understanding of how to deliver high quality care. While working at multiple institutions as a fellow, I felt very well prepared by my residency experience at BEI, which I believe compares favorably to any other program in the country."
