Wake Forest School of Medicine Reviews

Wake Forest Secondary Application

Overview

Wake Forest School of Medicine is a 4-year MD-granting program that welcomed its first class in 1902. Wake Forest School of Medicine recently switched to a new curriculum to adapt to the changing healthcare environment. Students now go through 18 months of integrating basic sciences into clinical practice with both simulated and actual patients, followed by two years of clinical curriculum. Wake Forest students do their clinical rotations at a number of locations including Wake Forest Baptist Health, Brenner Children’s Hospital, outpatient facilities, Veterans Affairs, and other medical centers. These unique partnerships allow for students to have more than 100 rotations to choose from during their fourth year. Wake Forest medical students also run the Delivering Equal Access to Care Clinic for those who are underinsured.
