Urban clinical excellence in the heart of Detroit

Important Updates for 2021 Application Cycle

Office of the Admissions at Wayne State University School of Medicine (WSUSOM) recognizes the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to ensure no applicants are disadvantaged as a result of this event, please note the amendments to our policy.

Coursework and Pre-Requisites:

Colleges and universities nationwide are offering a pass/fail or credit/no credit option in addition to transitioning to online platforms. For any pre-requisite coursework: Wayne State University School of Medicine strongly recommends that you do not take these courses online. However, during these uncertain times, we will be flexible if no in-person courses are available and will accept courses from other 4-year colleges and universities with preference given to your home institution.

For all courses: Strong candidates will select courses to be graded as opposed to P/F if the option is available.

2021 Application Cycle Interviews:

We do not use CASPer. All interviews will be held virtually through the Zoom platform in our AMP Application Portal. Interviews will consist of a faculty interview, a medical student interview, and up to five Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI) stations.

Through hands-on clinical education in the heart of a rapidly evolving city, the Wayne State University School of Medicine provides a distinct experiential advantage that sets you apart from your peers at other colleges. When you become a Warrior M.D., you'll work alongside leading clinicians who will take you out of the classroom and straight to the operating rooms, bedsides, and communities where your work will make a difference.
