“BPLA provides a valuable opportunity for internal and personal growth. It is a valuable introduction to the corporate world of medicine, which physicians generally have little experience with during training or practice. The relationships with other physicians going through the process I found to be liberating. BPLA is an eye-opening experience, which challenges your assumptions about yourself. The commitment of Beaumont Health to its stated goals and ideals is palpable. The focus on diversity and inclusiveness was clearly evident.” -2017 Fellow
