Wayne State University School of Medicine faculty and staff will graduate a diverse group of physicians and biomedical scientists who will transform the promise of equal health into a reality for all.
We will educate a diverse student body in an urban setting and within a culture of inclusion, through high quality education, clinical excellence, pioneering research, local investment in our community and innovative technology, to prepare physician and biomedical scientific leaders to achieve health and wellness for our society.
We are privileged to serve our community, state, nation, and the world as innovators in medicine, health, prevention and wellness.
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 WSU, we believe that GME 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.
As of July 1, 2015, ten WSU medical programs have received accreditation from the ACGME: Anesthesiology, Brain Injury Medicine Fellowship, Dermatology, Family Medicine, Otolaryngology, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Transitional Year, Urology, Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery fellowship, and Internal Medicine. There are currently 142 residents and fellows in training in the ten programs and our enrollment continues to grow.
Graduate Medical Education is committed to improving the health of the population served by providing opportunities that attend to the educational, administrative, financial, emotional and accreditation needs of the GME trainee. The GME Office is available to assist anyone who may have questions about the GME Office, policies and procedures, the accreditation process or the ten accredited programs.
