Why do you love Wayne State?

I love Wayne State because it is in the heart of Detroit, a city rich with culture and history.

What is your favorite thing about the School of Medicine?

I love the School of Medicine because, similar to the Army, it has a diverse set of people working together to help our community. 

What is your best advice for pre-med students?

Students should definitely work with a pre-health advisor to ensure they are fulfilling the requirements for application, writing strong essays and preparing for Interview Day. Not sure how to connect with your pre-health advisor? Review the AAMC's resources here.
