Seven Teaching Hospitals Prepare You for the Real World

As a community-based medical school, Wright State is affiliated with seven major teaching hospitals and more than 20 additional health care institutions in the Greater Dayton area. During your first two years, you will spend most of your time in the new, state-of-the-art Gandhi Medical Education Center in White Hall on the Wright State campus. Your final two years will include clerkships in a number of medical specialties and a wide variety of clinical experiences with our clinical affiliates.

The real-world advantage

This model will expose you to a diverse range of patients, practices and facilities, providing invaluable "real world" experience to prepare you for a successful career in a rapidly changing health care system. As a graduate of Wright State, you will enter the field of medicine with a distinct advantage over those with less varied training, and your skills, confidence and experience will serve you exceptionally well as a resident, fellow and practicing physician.

From a level I Trauma Center with the busiest emergency room in the state of Ohio, to a Level II Pediatric Trauma Center serving 20 Ohio counties, to one of the Air Force's largest medical treatment facilities and one of the nation's oldest VA hospitals, you'll gain valuable experience not available to students at other schools. We've outlined some highlights of each teaching hospital below. You can visit the home page of each hospital by clicking on its name.
