Virtual MD Alumni Weekend '21!
The Office of Alumni Relations at Wake Forest School of Medicine serves alumni from eight constituencies representing programs offered by Wake Forest School of Medicine and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.
Our goal is to help stay connected with both the school and each other.
We also assist alumni who want to make philanthropic gifts to scholarship. On average, more than 90 percent of our medical students receive scholarship and loan support each year to secure their education. Yet, most students still incur educational debt. Members of recent MD classes have graduated with an average medical school debt of more than $150,000 each. The projected debt average for the MD Class of 2019 is $197,000.
Scholarship endowment makes a significant difference: Every $1,000 in scholarship support can reduce a student's potential indebtedness by more than $8,400. See a complete list of endowed scholarships at the Wake Forest School of Medicine.
Of course, there are many other ways to get involved with current students in the School of Medicine. We encourage alumni to consider ways they can volunteer, including:
Wake Forest School of Medicine students volunteer with the Office of Philanthropy and Alumni Relations in a variety of ways.
