Northwest AHEC provides financial support to the primary care (Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Pediatrics and Psychiatry Residency) programs of WFBMC which help to fulfill the Northwest AHEC mission as demonstrated by the following data. The Northwest AHEC - supported Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center’s primary care and psychiatry residency programs graduated 71 physicians in 2007. Of major significance is that 46 of these new physicians (65%) have chosen to stay and practice medicine in North Carolina.
The Wake Forest Baptist Telestroke Network partners with community hospitals to ensure they have 24-hour access to Wake Forest Baptist’s acute-stroke experts via two-way live video and audio consultation and image-sharing technology. The central purpose is to reduce death and disability caused by strokes.
