“I chose to attend WSUSOM because I knew I wanted to experience the unmatched clinical opportunities that are offered by the medical school and the Detroit area at-large. WSUSOM has such a rich history and integration with the city of Detroit, as well as active engagement with members of the community, and I was really excited by the opportunity to learn from the unique groups that comprise the city. I also really valued that the school and curriculum are so focused on community engagement and training physicians to be competent in working to reduce healthcare disparities. ”
