Urban clinical excellence in the heart of Detroit

Important Update Regarding COVID-19 

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 & 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.

MCAT Testing Information:

Applications will be accepted from individuals who were unable to take the MCAT due to COVID-related test cancellations. For these candidates, we will base decisions on the information that is available to us at the time of the application. Assuming that MCAT testing resumes prior to October, we will require applicants to have taken the MCAT before we make admissions decisions for the Class of 2025.  We encourage applicants to not delay applying because an MCAT score is not yet available.

Early Decision Program: 

Early Decision Program (EDP) application deadline is August 3. Due to COVID, students may take the MCAT up to August 3 and still apply for the program. For more information, visit the EDP page
