There are a multitude of public policy issues that directly affect the future of the medical school and the Wayne State University Physicians Group including state appropriations, support for graduate medical education, NIH research and other federal agency grants, and funding for indigent care, just to name a few. Our expertise and passion for these issues must be communicated to those who make decisions.
