Training at William Beaumont in Michigan

William Beaumont Health System is consistently rated as one of the premier hospitals in the country, exemplary in clinical care and academic research. It is located in Royal Oak, Michigan just outside of Detroit. A Children's hospital within a larger hospital consists of a 40 bed pediatric floor, 10 bed PICU and 40 bed NICU. Beaumont houses one the busiest and oldest EDs in the country with over 115, 000 visits per year including adult and pediatric visits. Fellows have one adult and one pediatric month at our sister hospital in Troy, Michigan, a community hospital with a 226-bed hospital that sees nearly 70,000 patients annually.

Curriculum

The curriculum is a dual track for emergency medicine and pediatric trained residents. Recruitment will target clinically based pediatricians and emergency medicine physicians with a strong desire in teaching and developing superior clinical skills.

Trauma

Our trauma is run using a multidisciplinary Team Steps approach to trauma management. The fellows are an integral member of the team and have significant exposure to airway management and being the code leader. Fellows participate in EMS rides, helicopter transports and take part in the teaching of pre-hospital care providers. Faculty members in Emergency Medicine assist in the medical direction for the region's EMS and helicopter transportation service. Fellows have exposure to pediatric emergency medicine outside of the hospital setting, as well as to EMS administration, research, and education.

Ultrasound

The fellows are taught by fellowship trained emergency medicine ultrasonographers. These highly motivated academic ultrasonographers are involved in didactic and hands-on teaching. Similarly, ultrasound faculty are strong in research, presenting at national and regional conferences. There is a one year ultrasound fellowship at Beaumont.

Fellows have a two week ultrasound rotation during their second year of fellowship. During this time they are exposed to adult and pediatric patients and become comfortable with using ultrasound to diagnose common pediatric diseases. The utilization of ultrasound in the pediatric emergency department is strongly encouraged and it is expected the the fellow will be competent with the use of ultrasound by the end of their fellowship.
