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 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 December 1, 2014, ten WSU medical programs have received accreditation from the ACGME: Anesthesiology, Dermatology, Family Medicine, Orthopaedic Surgery, Otolaryngology, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Transitional Year, Urology, Ophthalmic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, and Internal Medicine. There are currently 153 residents 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 nine accredited programs.
