About Wake Forest School of Medicine

Wake Forest School of Medicine (WFSM) occupies a firm position among the best medical schools in the United States. The desire to teach excellence in clinical medicine, promote strong clinical and basic research, render exemplary patient care, and stress service to the community has continued as an integral part of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, a leading research and teaching hospital. We believe the best way to build a brighter future for health care is to invest in our students today.

The School of Medicine encompasses multiple education and training programs:

Medical (MD)
Nursing (nurse anesthesia, doctor of nursing practice)
Wake Forest University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (PhD, MS in biomedical sciences)
PA (physician assistant) Studies
Residencies and fellowships in more than 60 disciplines

At WFSM, we don’t just train doctors and researchers; we train leaders who will embrace learning throughout their careers. Our students, residents, fellows and graduate students are taught to balance science with compassion, and we cultivate in them a patient-centered perspective that will guide their daily efforts and their careers.
