Our medical students engage in the community beyond the classroom. Wayne State University School of Medicine is home to over 70 student organizations. Our medical students are able to take advantage of these resources and contribute to Wayne State University School of Medicine's vibrant extracurricular community.
Leadership positions are available and medical students invest their energies in the activities they choose. Students do not need to be president of an organization. However, residency programs like to see that you have spent time pursuing meaningful opportunities and that you have made a positive impact on the people around you.

Volunteer opportunities that are affiliated with Student Organizations for co-curricular credit.
Some students are already involved in volunteer activities through their own community associations. It is also valuable to continue participating in those activities during medical school. These can also be added to your curriculum vitae (CV) as part of your professional record.
