Wael Sakr, MD
Dean, Wayne State University School of Medicine

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are seamlessly integrated into every facet of our mission. We are committed to training a future physician workforce that is representative of our community and this demands that we create educational opportunities for all. Everyone who is dedicated to being a physician and caring for the most vulnerable amongst us deserves our guidance and our support. Wayne State University’s initiatives, Med Direct and the Post Baccalaureate, underscore our commitment to creating opportunity for our next generation of physicians. Many gifted students are held back by inferior K-12 educational experiences and simply require additional assistance to prepare for medical school. With this support, we enable underrepresented students to fulfill their dreams and ensure that we all have equal access to remarkable healthcare.

We so value our partnership with the Ascension Foundation as we ensure that healthcare serves all.
