Alumni are often motivated by a desire to create a legacy at their medical school while simultaneously “paying it forward” for a medical student to benefit from an endowed scholarship. Scholarships support our role as an academic medical center to inspire students toward their goals as future doctors, nurse anesthetists, physician assistants, and researchers—where they will touch thousands of patients, improving lives year after year. They will join generations of physician leaders educated in the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center tradition of rigorous training, innovative research and deep compassion. This Q&A will help you understand how you can help our students reach their goals through an endowed scholarship

“This scholarship is nothing short of a blessing, and your support is the only reason I am in medical school. Not only has this scholarship allowed me to attend medical school, it has allowed me to receive an education from some of the kindest and greatest minds I have ever been exposed to. I am so happy and thankful to be at Wake Forest School of Medicine.”
