Urban clinical excellence in the heart of Detroit

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.

Our mission

We will educate a diverse student body in an urban setting within a culture of inclusion through high-quality education, clinical excellence, pioneering research, local investment in our community, and innovative technology to prepare physicians and biomedical scientific leaders to achieve health and wellness for our society.

Join us for a tour

The Office of Admissions hold general tours of the School of Medicine twice a month. These tours are led by current medical students from our Warrior M.D. Ambassadors program. Please register in advance to attend a tour by filling out our online form.
