About us

The mission of the Wayne State University School of Medicine is to provide the Michigan community with medical and biotechnical resources, in the form of scientific knowledge and trained professionals, to improve the overall health of the community. The Office of Graduate Medical Education was established to oversee the human resource, financial and accreditation processes of residency and fellowship training programs at WSU.

According to the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the GME experience is the period following educational training in an organized medical school or college, and prepares the physician for independent practice (also referred to as residency training).

At Wayne State University, we believe that Graduate Medical Education encompasses more than these few years of training. The WSU School of Medicine is committed to educating graduate residents and fellows who are properly prepared to be effective practitioners who fulfill their professional roles in the context of people's needs. 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.
