We welcome applications from non-U.S. citizens who have a “green card” (permanent resident status) or a current visa valid through the entire duration of the residency program (~54 weeks). The Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak PGY1 pharmacy residency program is unable to sponsor visas for pharmacy residents.

Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak offers a two-year non-traditional (NT) PGY1 residency program.  Applicants must be a Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak pharmacist for at least 1 year prior to the residency program start date. The program accepts two residents every two years. The next recruitment cycle will be for the 2023-2025 NT PGY1 residency program.

  • Residents are expected to play an active role in precepting Doctor of Pharmacy students who are scheduled on rotation with them. Beaumont receives students from a number of different Colleges of Pharmacy.

  • Residents interested in teaching can select the academics learning experience as an elective.
  • Residents have the opportunity to participate in a resident Teaching and Learning Curriculum Certificate Program offered in conjunction with Wayne State University.

What is the staffing requirement?

Residents will have staffing responsibilities every third weekend and two holidays of the year.

What is the licensure policy for PGY1 residents?

All residents entering the program should strive to be fully licensed by their start date. NOTE: in recent years, it has taken the Michigan Board of Pharmacy 4-6 weeks to process licensure applications.

Incoming PGY1 residents not fully licensed prior to program start date, and who do not have confirmed examination dates prior to their program start date, must contact the  PGY1 Residency Program Director PRIOR to the residency start date to create a written plan for licensure. Individuals who fail to meet the licensure deadlines will be evaluated by the RPD and the Residency Advisor Committee, as appropriate. Program extension may be considered, and residency training plans may be modified to accommodate licensure delays, including but not limited to, adjustments to staffing, on-call and rotation schedules. Failure to pass a licensing exam after two attempts will be grounds for dismissal. If the resident is not licensed within 90 days after the program start date, the resident will be dismissed from the program.

*program requirements are subject to change at the discretion of the residency program director and advisory committee.
