Beaumont Hospitals

 I rotated at two Urology Programs; one of which was Beaumont and the other was my home program.  Beaumont was by far and away my favorite program.  I loved Beaumont.  Beaumont Hospitals' Chair is Dr. K.M. Peters.  They decided to not accept applications this year because they want to become a five year program.  One of their most common complaints was that they are losing applicants because they were a 6 year program and not a 5 year program, so they decided it was in their best interest to become a 5 year program.  However, Dr. Peters (Chair) and Dr. Hollander (PD) are the best chair and PD that you could ask for!.  I have made it clear to them that I would love to be a Beaumont Resident.  However, it is unfortunate that they are not taking residents this year!  If you are a 3rd year or a rising 4th year, I highly recommend that you check out Beaumont Hospitals in Royal Oak.  I know that program, and I know most of the residents there, and it is worth its weight in gold.

 I have heard also very good things about this program. I was kind of bummed when I found out that they weren't accepting residents this year. I was born and raised in the area (before moving out for medical school) and can tell you with confidence that they're a very strong program located in a safe detroit suburb where there are a lot of young professionals. there is a legitimate nightlife with lots to do in royal oak during the days/weekends as well. housing is very affordable.

Next year will be a desired program...

I rotated through beaumont urology as well.  I think there are a few key factors that set it above the others.1) Volume:  The interns are handing a lot of the cysto cases and logging >60 procedures a month.  The third years (or Uro 1) seemed to be the most competent residents compared to other programs.  Granted, they had two years of general surgery, but you can tell the program gets their top picks.  And the graduation seniors are getting whatever they want, whether that be competitive fellowships or community.2) Location:  In Royal Oak, one of the best communities to live in for young proffesionals.  People hear Detroit and get scared, but Royal Oak is far removed from that area.  And unlike Nebraska, being close to Detroit puts you at the center of it all.  Every resource or restaurant is at your fingertips.3) General Surgery:  The general surgery progam there is not malignant,  It seems like it would be a great year to learn the basics without hating life. 4) Academics:  They just became a university affiliated program.  Plus they already have really interesting research set up with top docs, like Michael Chancellor and Kenneth Peters.  Research is not hard to find, but its also not demanded.5) Residents:  They all seemed really great, down to earth and non-malignant.  A standard for Urology, but you still have to make sure.6) Attendings:  All fellowship trained, great educators.7) Many more positives....  The only negative attributes were that it was 6 years.  Also, some people want the "name" of a university.  But as I explored different programs and asked around, Beaumont is well known and well respected across the country.I expect this next round of interviews will be quite competitive and a top desired program....

Beaumont Urology Program

The department of Urology at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak will be transitioning its residency program from six years to five years, starting with the 2012-2013 academic term on July 1. The residents will still see the same quality four-year urology training, according to Jay Hollander, M.D., Urology residency program director who added that the pre-urology surgical training would be tailored to a one-year exposure. “Nationally, most programs have trended towards a five-year program,” noted Dr. Hollander. “The cost of medical education has skyrocketed, and we hope this will be viewed as a favorable aspect to our program without significantly compromising the educational component.”Please visit the Programs website for further information: Urology - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-residencyProgram Faculty - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-program-facultyCurriculum - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-curriculumDidactics - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-didacticsGoals & Objectives - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-goals-objectivesOutcomes - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-outcomesResearch - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-researchBeaumont Urology News - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-patient-populationEvents - http://meded.beaumont.edu/node/641Application - http://meded.beaumont.edu/urology-application
