Clinical Rotations

As the largest healthcare provider in Michigan, with over 90 graduate medical education programs, our burden in designing our clinical curriculum was not how to scrap together enough valuable learning experiences but, rather, figuring out how much of what Beaumont has to offer could be included in just four years of training. We chose learning experiences that ensure residents have exposure to diverse patient populations, in terms of both demographics and diagnoses. Because Metro Detroit is fortunate to be one of the most diverse areas in the world, residents have the opportunity to train at various training sites, all within relatively close proximity to each other. Residents will have the privilege to serve people of all ages, genders, ethnocultural, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds. They will help people with depression, anxiety, psychosis, mania, addiction, dementia, developmental disabilities, and various other mental health concerns. Additionally, the benefit of a university-affiliated community-based residency is that residents get exposure to various hospitals and clinics, which will make them more knowledgeable and adaptable in their future careers. Some rotations are in blocks to provide concentrate intensive training in a particular area while others are longitudinal rotations to allow for continuity of care. Residents are also welcome to participate in electives, both internally and outside core training sites. Compared to most other programs, our residents will have extra opportunities to develop expertise in psychotherapy, developmental disabilities and community mental health. Our philosophy is to expose residents to all types of people and services that exist across mental healthcare, and help them hone their personal interests and achieve their personal goals.

Didactics

We believe very strongly in having a comprehensive, biopsychosocial curriculum. We have color-coated the courses to ensure and to demonstrate that this is happening. Historically, psychiatry residencies have been divided into “biomedical” or “psychotherapeutic” programs. At Beaumont, we think this way of thinking is antiquated. The debate is over: it is not nature vs. nurture, it is always nature and nurture. Our curriculum reflects the philosophy that, to be a competent, modern biopsychosocial psychiatrist, one must understand neurobiology and psychopharmacology, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral principles, and social determinants of health (e.g., socioeconomics, culture, trauma). Another thing that we pride ourselves on is that we have a number of clinician-educators—with varying degrees, specialties and seniority—that enthusiastically volunteer to teach residents. We are not the type of program that only has a small number of junior faculty members that are forced to teach. We love teaching. It is not something we have to do, it is something we want to do. It is not something extra on top of our real job, it is our real job. Finally, we are excited to be innovative in our curriculum. Our courses, seminars, case conferences and journal clubs aim to be fun and interactive whenever possible.
