Medical Students

The Wake Forest University Medical School is an integrated program; students are exposed to our faculty and fellows throughout the four years of their training. The faculty is responsible for didactic teaching of basic pathophysiology in the preclinical years (Phase IIb), as well as clinical education as attending physicians for upper level students on selected four-week rotations in the ambulatory, inpatient medicine and intensive care settings (Phases III and IV).  Our fellows are actively involved in hands on education of students, serving as clinical mentors during the clinical years. Internal and external medical students may also choose a month long elective classified in the catalog as Med12. This rotation may range from basic science rotations in our bench laboratories to clinical rotations with faculty members.
