Fantastic, Sams!: OUWB alumnus from Class of 2016 makes his mark at Michigan Medicine

Woodrow Sams, M.D., says it’s easy to look back and clearly see one’s journey in life, but fully acknowledges how that clarity can get murky in the moment and at especially trying times.

That’s why Sams, ’16, OUWB, says he is fortunate to have had help through those murkier times along the way.

That includes, he says, help from those at OUWB who “took me under their wing and guided me to where I am today.”

Where he is today is Ann Arbor — specifically, as an Emergency Medicine Physician at Michigan Medicine.

“Without the people at OUWB…the mentors I had, the friends and relationships…I wouldn’t be where I am,” he says. “I’m just so thankful that they set me on this trajectory that I had never anticipated for myself.”
