I chose Wayne State because you get exposure to a variety of patients and very interesting psychopathology.  there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in research and they have a great group of mentors who work closely with the residents. 





PGY-4 Residents

"Going through my residency training at Wayne has been great. I have had the opportunity to be exposed to a wide variety of patient populations, and therefore have been able to learn many different psychiatric pathologies. Importantly, the residents and faculty at Wayne are fantastic: a great group of people that are a joy to work with and make this a fun and exciting experience! To my surprise, living in the greater Detroit area has been a lot of fun! The cultural aspect of the city is showcased in the variety of music festivals, museums, culinary adventures, night life, sporting events, and more! I'll admit, the Canadian Football League fan in me has secretly started buying Detroit Lions gear (shhh, don't tell!)."

PGY-3 Residents


Gina Rana, MD
"After going to Wayne State for medical school, I am very happy to continue my training here!  I chose Wayne for my residency training because of the strong work ethic of the residents and the fund of knowledge encompassed in the attending faculty.  The patient population suffers from a wide variety of psychiatric illnesses, and the program provides a lot of autonomy to develop your clinical skills while treating patients.  Equally as important, I love spending time with the other residents, going to restaurants in Detroit or checking out local events."

I am absolutely loving my time at Wayne!  I went to Wayne for medical school and I am very happy to be continuing here for residency.   I chose Wayne for the diversity of experiences in downtown Detroit and in the Greater Metro area, the many opportunities to get involved in research, and the ability to get involved in my areas of interest.  I like that there is dedicated time to deepen knowledge of Psychiatry through various lectures and seminars given weekly during all years of residency.  But most of all I like that the faculty are warm, knowledgeable, and super approachable.   Learning is definitely more enjoyable with their support.
