Enjoy Support and Encouragement

Within a Collaborative, Close-knit Community

Wherever you go, medical school will likely involve some of the most challenging, intense and profoundly transformative experiences of your life. At Wright State, you can look forward to sharing both the struggles and triumphs within a close-knit community characterized by support, encouragement and collaboration. We deliberately foster a welcoming, supportive atmosphere in a number of ways — from small class sizes that make it easy to get to know all of your fellow students, to faculty who are always accessible and eager to help you succeed.

We also pride ourselves on the diversity of our students, whose varied backgrounds and life experiences enhance both the quality of medical education and the strength of our community. In fact, our commitment to diversity was recognized in the Annals of Internal Medicine. In a study of 141 U.S. medical schools, which examined statistics on the percentage of graduates who practice primary care, work in health professional shortage areas and are underrepresented minorities, the Boonshoft School of Medicine ranked fourth in the nation for its social mission.

Our amazing students are proof positive that you can receive a world-class medical education without the pressures of an intensely competitive environment.
