We welcome alumni of Wake Forest School of Medicine to show their support by becoming active members in the Medical Alumni Association (MAA).
In addition to providing engagement activities for alumni, the MAA organizes the MAA Annual Fund, which allows the School of Medicine to maintain its high standards and to continue attracting the most talented medical students, regardless of financial need.
Supported by gifts from alumni, parents, house staff alumni, friends, organizations, corporations and foundations, the fund's primary role is to preserve the school's mission of excellence in medical education. It provides unrestricted funding for student loans and scholarship support, library acquisitions, faculty support, and the maintenance and expansion of educational programs and facilities.
Scholarships provided through the MAA Annual Fund give the school a competitive edge in attracting the most promising students.
Endowed Scholarships is another way in which alumni can show their support. More than 75 percent of our endowed scholarships have been established by or in honor or memory of an alumnus/alumna. Scholarships support our role as an academic medical center to inspire students toward their goals as future doctors, nurse anesthetists, physician assistants, researchers – where they will touch thousands of patients, improving lives year after year.
