Parent & Family Program

OUWB Parent & Family Program

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.

Join the Parent & Family Program today. 

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.
