About

The Wayne State School of Medicine has prepared students to be health care leaders and advocates who go on to change the world since 1868. Our dedication to urban clinical excellence and contribution to Detroit's revitalization is unwavering. Our community service roots run deep, and our focus on a healthier world grows ever stronger.

School of Medicine students and faculty collaborate and innovate with health care systems and community partners to reduce health disparities and improve - and save - residents' lives. The School of Medicine's location and partnerships with hospitals and clinics allow students to interact with patients and engage with physicians in a real-world setting. Our students take the lessons learned into the community to lead programs like Street Medicine Detroit; operate clinics that serve residents with cancer, diabetes and other ailments; and mentor schoolchildren. 

Through social responsiveness and a continuous focus on innovation in education, research and clinical care, the Wayne State School of Medicine will continue to graduate a diverse group of physicians and biomedical scientists who will transform the promise of equal health for all into a reality.
