About Oasis

About Oasis
Welcome to the wonderful world of Oasis! Oasis is an anthology of artistry and literary expression crafted by students and faculty of Wake Forest School of Medicine. It aims to provide students with a forum to articulate their triumphs and defeats, their concerns and their appreciation as well as their reflections on life. Oasis is an anthology, but more importantly it is a collage of personas and ideas, philosophies and ideals that mirror the depth and diversity of the student body. It is our pleasure to invite the alumni of the medical school and the Wake Forest community to this Oasis.
