All Aboard!

We’ll jump on a charter bus for a quick trip to Royal Oak – home to Beaumont’s largest hospital with over 1,000 beds.

Lunch

Each applicant is scheduled for two separate interviews with physicians, faculty members, deans, or M4 students.  Both interviews will take place at Beaumont Royal Oak. Interviews are semi-blind.


Tour: Beaumont Hospital - Royal Oak

An OUWB student will lead you on a tour of the hospital. We think you’ll be impressed by this major academic and referral center with Level I Trauma status.
