The recreational and cultural activities of the surrounding suburban communities play a role in the lives of members of the Wayne State community. The School of Medicine has a history rich in community involvement, which allows the School’s medical students to reflect an exemplary commitment to the urban environment that makes Detroit special. As active members of the urban community, a large number of students make community outreach a priority during their medical school experience by serving the needs of the city’s youth, elderly, under- and uninsured populations. Collaborative efforts between the School of Medicine and hospital affiliates have resulted in a strong commitment to improving the health of the community.
