Our Story

Oakland University (Oakland) and Beaumont Health (Beaumont) were founded at approximately the same time, half a century ago, in close proximity to each other and in a region of greater Detroit.

Oakland University and Beaumont Health

Today, Oakland is one of 15 public universities in Michigan. Oakland has an enrollment exceeding 20,000 students and a Carnegie classification of doctoral/research university-intensive.

Beaumont is a not-for-profit organization formed by Beaumont Health System, Botsford Health Care and Oakwood Healthcare to provide high quality, efficient, accessible services in a caring environment for southeastern Michigan residents and beyond.

OUWB medical students train at three of the eight Beaumont Health Hospitals: Beaumont Royal Oak, Beaumont Troy, and Beaumont Grosse Pointe.

The partnership between Oakland University and Beaumont Health

Following exploratory discussions, including discussions with community leaders, Oakland and Beaumont concluded that the combined faculty, staff and infrastructure resources of their institutions would provide a remarkably strong base on which to build a new medical school.

In January 2007, Oakland and Beaumont submitted a letter of intent to the LCME to initiate the formal process of accrediting a new allopathic medical school. The initiative to fund a new medical school was approved by both the Beaumont Hospital Board of Directors and the Oakland University Board of Trustees on July 31, 2008.
