Welcome to the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine Parent & Family Program. As someone you care about embarks on the journey of an OUWB student, you too become part of a wonderful community that we call the OUWB family. The OUWB Parent & Family Program is committed to helping you participate in your student's experience at medical school and beyond. We believe an informed, supportive family aids your student in having an enriching and successful medical school experience.

About the Program

The OUWB Parent & Family Program brings together parents, grandparents, stepparents, extended family members, foster parents, and legal guardians of current, past, and future OUWB students. We will serve as the communication link and portal of resources between the OUWB & family members. The OUWB Parent & Family Program sends quarterly eNewsletters, hosts regional meetings as well as on-campus events, and more. The Program is growing and we look forward to providing even more opportunities for involvement in the near future.

OUWB HOST (Help Our Students Travel) Program

Join the OUWB HOST Program. Hosts are OUWB alumni and Parent Program members who volunteer to host a student visiting your area during residency interviews or away rotations. HOST volunteers help to offset the financial burden of traveling for residency interviews and away rotations by offering students housing, meals, transportation and/or insights on the area and medical community. As a host, you are truly helping a student as they prepare for life beyond medical school.
