Does Wake Forest School of Medicine offer tours and visits?  

The School of Medicine welcomes visitors to the medical center campus and aims to accommodate at the requester's convenience.

We offer formal tours given by medical students during our interview season, early September through mid March, at 1:00 and 2:00 pm on weekdays.  Please plan on arriving at least 15 minutes in advance. There are no weekend tours provided.

At other times, tours are assembled at the convenience of the medical students and their schedules and visitor requests are grouped, if possible.

Please call or email the Office of Student Admissions at least a week in advance at 336.716.4264 or medadmit@wakehealth.edu to be sure the tour can be arranged.

For the above reasons drop-ins are discouraged.
