Nicholas Righi

“ Wayne stands out as exceptional for a multitude of reasons. However, if I had to point to one reason, I chose WSUSOM because I wanted to attend a medical school that fostered a collaborative atmosphere among its students. Before attending medical school, I was worried that the environment would be competitive and lonely. These concerns quickly melted away when I found that the students at Wayne are always willing to lend a had to those that need it, whether this be sharing study resources or generally supporting friends through the stress of this journey. ”
