Corewell Health is the new name for Beaumont.

The Diagnostic Radiology Residency Program at Beaumont Hospital Royal Oak is directed towards comprehensive training in diagnostic radiology, with resident education as the focus of our program. The Program Evaluation Committee is devoted to establishing and maintaining a program that provides a solid foundation of basic diagnostic radiology, as well as an optimal experience in all sub-specialty areas. Residents are provided with multiple resources by the program, including IMAIOS anatomy, BoardVitals, MRI Online, RadPrimer, and StatDX as first years, and the Titan Radiology videos as third years as preparation for the CORE exam.


Conference

A significant focus of the Beaumont, Royal Oak Radiology residency program is the importance of frequent lectures. Multiple lectures/conferences are given throughout the workweek with at least two daily lectures provided to the residents, typically conducted at 7:00 am and 12:00 pm. The topics of the given lectures vary from day to day covering the various subsections of the ABR core examination, as well as covering the extensive breadth of knowledge needed to become a competent practicing radiologist.

Daily Conference

  • Conferences are a mixture of case-based and didactic
  • Didactic lectures are led by faculty member who is an expert in that field and cover all the subspecialties of radiology
    • 7 am Conferences are interesting case conferences
    • Noon Conferences are didactic lectures given by faculty

July lecture schedule

  • First year residents will receive introductory Bootcamp lectures, including physics
  • Fourth year residents attend Business of Radiology lecture series

Medical School

Beaumont Hospital-Royal Oak is the teaching affiliate for Oakland University- William Beaumont (OUWB) School of Medicine, with all of their students doing their rotations at our institution. The Diagnostic-Radiology Department has had a key role in the education of medical students at OUWB School of Medicine since its inception.


  • All OUWB medical students have a required rotation during their clinical years (Diagnostic Medicine), in which they receive multiple lectures per week from radiology residents and attendings. This provides exposure to radiology for the medical students, as well as a valuable teaching opportunity for our radiology residents
  • All students who rotate through the Radiology Elective, get a lecture series, which is run by the radiology residents
  • Medical students in their pre-clinical years have interactive anatomy labs, which are run in conjunction with the Anatomists, Clinicians and Radiologists
  • Radiology residents and radiology attendings work with these other eductors and run a hands on simulation for the Medical Students at the OUWB anatomy lab
  • Residents also engage our medical students through our diagnostic radiology/radiation oncology interest group, RADSAG

Extracurriculars

Residents have the opportunity to participate in and obtain leadership positions in various extracurricular activities:

  • Michigan Radiology Society resident/fellows section: active participation by the residents is encouraged and a few residents hold officer positions each year
  • Informatics interest group
  • Women in Radiology interest group
