Our Graduates Get Top Residencies
Of course, you want a medical school that will prepare you well for clinical training in your chosen specialty. Our graduates routinely match at prestigious residency training programs across the country, and long-term studies indicate that 95 percent of them are rated as equal to or better than their peers during residency training. Typically, 40 to 45 percent of graduating WSU medical students choose residencies in primary care fields, while the majority choose other specialties ranging from anesthesiology to urology. After graduation just over half the members of each class relocate to another state to begin residency training.
During your medical career at Wright State, faculty are available as mentors, advocates and advisors. Many of our clinical faculty members have volunteered to serve as advisors in helping you make a specialty choice — your career in medicine. They can provide invaluable information about their medical specialties, including application procedures, requirements, certification and training programs.
