What impressed you positively?

"As the only med school in Detroit students have access to all of the city's hospitals. This allows Wayne State to provide climical hands on patient experience very early on in the program (most programs there is no clinical experience until the 3rd or 4th year.) Also it appears Wayne is very well respected close 100% of students get there 1st or 2nd choice in placement through the matching program." Report Response
