Helping Hand Program

Helping Hand Program

Wake Forest School of Medicine, Office of Student Inclusion and Diversity and the Student National Medical Association (SNMA) are pleased to offer to students interested in healthcare, the Helping Hand Program. 

SNMA has agreed to offer assistance in locating temporary housing for prospective students and to be available to answer questions. Students are paired with medical students from their undergraduate college when possible.  Occasionally, students need assistance with transportation to or from the airport, train or bus stations. Assistance with travel needs is possible with at least two weeks notice.

Second Look

Wake Forest has a strong institutional commitment to increase diversity in its training programs. The Office of Student Inclusion and Diversity (SID) and the Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity represent significant support for the inclusion of underrepresented and/or disadvantaged students and a diverse faculty in every aspect of the academic environment. If you desire another experience on campus before making your final decision, The Student National Medical Association (SNMA)  has agreed to assist the Admissions Office and the Office of Student Inclusion and Diversity with a ‘second look’ visit. We are happy to arrange accommodations with current SNMA members who are eager to talk with you about that all-important decision of where to matriculate.
