“I choose Wayne State for Medical School because of schools mission and dedication towards serving the population of Detroit. I grew up in the suburbs around Detroit and was excited to get the chance to make my own impact on such an influential city in our nations history and the people that live in it. With the numerous free clinics associated with WSUSOM, early clinical rotation experience, and countless opportunities to integrate into the community while furthering my medical education, Wayne State offered all I wanted from a medical school. In addition, Detroit offered a lively city with a deep cultural background to live in with a plethora of restaurants and entertainment venues to explore at every corner!”
