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.

“I stood in the corner of a homeless shelter and watched students help these people, free of any judgment or preconceived notions. I knew then that this organization and this university were different.” Andrew Darmahkasih, M3
