Clinical site locations

Over the course of five years, residents are exposed to a variety of practice settings, ranging from a large, tertiary care, academic center at the Beaumont Health Royal Oak campus, to a community hospital at Beaumont Taylor. In total, residents will spend 4.5 years at Beaumont Royal Oak and 6 months at Beaumont Taylor. Although there is no shortage of surgical volume between these two hospitals, residents sometimes elect to travel to Beaumont Troy or the Ambulatory Surgical Center to operate with different attendings and further enhance their surgical experience.

Ambulatory Surgery Centers and Private Clinics

Also available to residents is the opportunity to participate in the many private clinics and ambulatory surgical centers.  These are staffed by Beaumont’s orthopaedic surgeons who provide a diverse experience of practice settings and case diversity.
