The mission of WSUSOM is to provide the Michigan community with medical and biotechnical resources, in the form of scientific knowledge and trained professionals, to improve overall health. The Office of Graduate Medical Education (WSUGME) was established to oversee the human resource and financial and accreditation processes of residency and fellowship training programs at WSU.
According to the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), the graduate medical experience is the period (also referred to as residency training) following graduation from a formal organized medical school, with the goal to prepare the physician for independent practice.
Our core faculty are dedicated to providing graduate residents and fellows with the level of high-quality training to be effective practitioners in fulfilling their professional roles as excellent clinical practitioners and outstanding researchers. WSUGME faculty provide service to our communities, deliver medical knowledge to our residents and fellows, and demonstrate the compassion and skills required to fulfill our commitment to ensuring patient safety and the best in health care. Please read our Residency Times newsletters to stay updated on important WSUGME news!
