Pronounced "es-kyu-LEY-pee-uhns," Aesculapians is an honorary service organization devoted to the city of Detroit and Wayne State University School of Medicine. Every March, new members in good academic standing are nominated by their peers for their commitment to service and participation in extracurricular activities. Our organization consists of approximately 50 members from all four classes. We are involved in many medical school activities, including First-Year Orientation and Orientation Guide, the Annual Appreciation Call, Peer Mentoring Program, and the sponsorship of our end of the year event, Lampoon.
We select one service organization based in Detroit to be sponsored yearly. We organize volunteer events for members and the school, and the proceeds from our end of the year event, Lampoon, supports the selected community partner.
