From the Chief Residents

Will Aaron Martin, MDKristin Davis Hauser, MD

"One of the best aspects of our residency involves the recognition that everyone has unique career aspirations. The culture at Wake Forest University School of Medicine prioritizes the resident experience, affording a well-rounded training in preparation for any career. Residents are matched early on with a mentor who is there to help them navigate that journey. After mastering the basics and various subspecialties, residents can tailor their schedules to best prepare them for whichever path they pursue post-residency. Ultimately, we routinely place residents in a variety of premier fellowships, academic, and private practice jobs around the country."
