Professional development

The Office of Graduate Medical Education seeks to support the development of our residents and faculty in order to help them achieve success throughout their professional careers. WSUGME focuses on fostering clinical excellence, creating a culture of inclusion, and supporting pioneering research, as these are fundamental in accomplishing the mission of the Wayne State University School of Medicine. WSUGME provides bootcamps, seminars, and links to numerous internal and external resources.
