About OUWB Curriculum

Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine offers an innovative four-year curriculum that vertically integrates the basic and clinical sciences. The training of our students to become compassionate physicians starts with skills instruction and patient encounters beginning in the first semester. 

The program of study includes an organ system-based preclinical curriculum integrated with longitudinal courses in the art and practice of medicine, medical humanities and clinical bioethics, the promotion and maintenance of health and personal and professional development. A four-year-long research program requires each student to move beyond competency requirements and contribute to the advancement of medicine and healthcare by undertaking a scholarly project.
