Through excellence in education and research and direct integration into Wake Forest Baptist Health, we have cultivated a leading academic medical center, and we continue to grow.
As we look to the future, we’ve positioned our medical school to become the nexus of our evolving learning health system—an organization with a culture of learning and innovation where everyone is invited to explore questions aimed at improving how we do what we do.
And with the medical school as our health system’s nucleus, research and education become the means, not an end to accomplishing our goal of improving health.
What does that look like? As a learning health system, we’re actively and intentionally integrating research and education into patient care settings and feeding knowledge gained from those settings... back into the academic ecosystem—so we can improve health not just in a distant future, but starting today.
