Greetings from Oakland University William Beaumont (OUWB)
School of Medicine!

With the academic year winding down and graduation right around the corner, we're reflecting on another successful year here at OUWB. We're excited to share our excellent residency match results and are looking forward to welcoming the Class of 2026 this fall. We believe every accredited medical school can offer an excellent education, but at OUWB our medical students are developed to become skillful, ethical, and compassionate physicians who are dedicated to improving the health of their communities.

Looking ahead to the next generation of OUWB medical students, we'd like to share the prerequisite coursework, some information on the new AAMC PREview Professional Readiness Exam, and how the PREview Exam will be utilized in our admissions process. We will continue to look for students who align with our mission and values by utilizing a holistic approach.

Our website,, is a great resource to learn more about the opportunities we offer. Individuals can find information about admissions requirements, the Class of 2025 profile, as well as OUWB's refreshed mission, vision and values. If you or your students have any questions, please feel free to reach out via email at or by phone at (248) 370-2769. 

All the best,

Dan Kallenberger

The AAMC PREview Professional Readiness Exam was designed to help assess the readiness of an individual to learn about professionalism in medical school. The exam enables medical schools to assess non-academic, pre-professional competencies that research shows meaningfully impact an individual’s performance during medical training and as practicing physicians.

The PREview exam aligns nicely with many of OUWB's values and gives applicants an opportunity to distinguish themselves by displaying their pre-professional characteristics. The AAMC PREview Professional Readiness Exam is highly recommended for all applicants that plan to apply to OUWB beginning in the 2022-2023 application cycle. Additional information pertaining to how OUWB will utilize this exam is explained on our Admissions website and we have addressed some possible FAQs as well. 

We believe this exam will enhance our admissions process, which is why we are one of eighteen medical schools utilizing this exam this upcoming cycle. The exam is cost-effective and equitable as it is a $100 flat fee for examinees with unlimited distribution to participating schools. In addition, those applicants that are approved for AAMC's Fee Assistance Program will also have this fee waived. We encourage you to review the information and free preparation materials provided by the AAMC as well as on our website as you guide your students. 





The 2022-2023 admissions cycle will open shortly and we want to provide useful updates. 

As our communities continue to heal from the impact of COVID-19, we will continue to provide an admissions process that is supportive and equitable to all applicants. Our admissions requirements and any updates, including our interview format that continues to remain virtual this upcoming cycle, have been published on our website and AAMC's Medical School Admission Requirements (MSAR). As always, our admissions process will look to identify individuals who align with the mission, vision, and values of OUWB.





Match Day marks one of the most important days of a medical student's journey and we are extremely proud of our students' accomplishments. We strongly believe that their commitment to the OUWB mission combined with hard work led to another remarkable Match.

OUWB has consistently enjoyed a Match rate above the national average and continues this year with a 98% Match rate with 28% matching in Michigan. This year, our students matched at programs like Brigham & Women's Hospital, University of California San Francisco, Beaumont Health, Cleveland Clinic, and numerous other competitive programs across 23 states. You can read more about OUWB's Match Day experience and see a full Match list online.





OUWB Student Organizations Fundraise More Than $10k

In true OUWB fashion, three student organizations collaborated with their respective members to raise over $10,000 for charity. The Pediatric, Oncology, and Urology interest groups each held individual events within the community for a good cause. Read more about their efforts and the charities they are supporting. 





Students Provide Health Screening and Education with Local Community

Service learning is not just preached, but also practiced within the OUWB curriculum. Our students take those lessons to heart and apply them within our local communities to provide education as well as important health screenings the community needs. Contributing to local communities builds the compassion that is a strength shared by our students. 





Third-Year Student Leads Critical Study of COVID-19 Boosters

Nicholas Mielke, M3, has been published as a lead author of a study in collaboration with Beaumont emergency physician, Amit Bahl, M.D. The study has gained widespread attention, including a comment from Anthony Fauci, M.D. We are proud of the impressive work from our students and highlight the importance of research to best serve our communities as we continue to treat this COVID-19 virus.




Exemplary, Compassionate Care Shines Through with OUWB Students Recognized for Humanism

An impressive 19 students and 6 Beaumont residents were inducted into the Gold Humanism Honor Society at OUWB. The society focuses on recognizing those who exemplify compassionate care in addition to being leaders in medicine. Join us in celebrating these students and their commitment to creating good within the communities they serve.
