Wake Forest School of Medicine is the education and research component of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, a fully integrated academic medical center anchored by an 885-bed tertiary care hospital as well as community hospitals, affiliated partners and Brenner Children’s Hospital.

This is a time of tremendous growth for our medical school and health system. In October 2020, Wake Forest Baptist Health and Atrium Health officially joined together in a strategic partnership to operate as a single enterprise. As part of this new enterprise, Atrium Health has announced $3.4 billion in planned investments in our health system and the communities we serve. The Wake Forest School of Medicine has become the academic core of Atrium Health, and progress is underway to build a second campus of the school of medicine in Charlotte, North Carolina. The growth of the school of medicine will expand existing academic research capabilities and opportunities for clinical trials across a large, diverse market with some of the nation’s leading medical experts.
