“Why should I choose the Wayne State University School of Medicine Graduate Programs?”
Our students and alumni have identified the level of knowledge they have gained and the real-world preparedness we offer as benefits they would not have necessarily received had they selected another institution for their graduate degree.
Wayne State University uses a community approach to law enforcement, recognizing that the strong partnerships between police and the campus community enable the highest levels of protection.
The Wayne State Police Force is comprised of officers commissioned by the City of Detroit and they have the same responsibilities and authority as any police officer in a Michigan municipality. The full-service Force includes 90 dedicated men and women who serve in administrative capacities, in patrol cars and on mountain bikes. A group of civilian cadets provide back-up patrol, making safety a community effort that is taken very seriously.
We pride ourselves in identifying and capitalizing on the potential of all types of students-those with outstanding undergraduate academic credentials, as well as those whose undergraduate academic record may not be as strong but have the drive to succeed. Our ability to provide personalized attention to students, combined with their true desire and commitment to achievement, result in graduates with knowledge and qualifications that meet or exceed their peers who attend other, higher-ranking universities.
You may contact the Program Directors of the degree program of interest to you, or you may contact the Office of Graduate Scholars directly.
