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.
