“I chose Wayne State primarily based on the size as well as its health programs. I knew I didn’t want to go to a huge school where I was just a face in the crowd, and the relationships that I can build with my professors have been beneficial to my academic success. RHOP is a great opportunity. The program also has a strong partnership with University of Nebraska Medical Center, which made it extremely appealing to me.”
