General Information


The School of Medicine bookstore has merged into the University Stores of Wake Forest University. Textbooks, medical books, medical equipment, and other items previously sold through our bookstore can now be purchased online through WFU's University Stores. The "virtual" bookstore offers additional textbook choices for students including new, used, rental, and loose-leaf editions, with the ability to price compare online. Items can be shipped directly to students, faculty, and staff who order from the University Stores Web site.

Caps and gowns, class rings, white coats for medical students, etc., will be handled by on-site representatives. The University Stores will also carry Medical School memorabilia and gifts online.

Questions may be directed to Willie Williams at University Bookstores:; Phone: 336-758-4154.

*Before buying a book, be sure you understand the return policies, since many books cannot be returned to the distributor after purchase. Early purchase of texts by first-year students is discouraged, since course requirements change and consultation with other students may enhance wise and frugal acquisition of books.
