The WSU School of Medicine Office of Graduate Medical Education is committed to educating residents and fellows who are properly prepared to be effective practitioners who fulfill their professional roles in the context of patients' needs. At Wayne State, we believe that graduate medical education encompasses much more than these few years of training.
GME provides service to our communities, support to our peers, training to our residents and extends our medical knowledge, compassion and skills toward our mission of patient safety and quality health care.
