Our Mission Statement

To educate aspiring physicians about blood disorders and cancer, and the field of hematology-oncology, while also serving as a resource for volunteer, research, and residency opportunities.


H.O.P.E. is an oncology interest group of medical students at the Wayne State University School of Medicine. Our group's advisors consist of both research faculty at the SOM as well as clinically based practices in the surrounding areas. H.O.P.E. connects our future physicians -the students- with mentors in their field of interest. We place an equal emphasis in understanding the struggle of those diagnosed with cancer and their families. We are active in many areas, including cancer awareness, survivor support, and medical education.
