Our Emergency Department has been a Level 1 trauma center since 1982, with numerous specialty accreditations including an accredited chest pain center, stroke center, one of just two burn centers in North Carolina and full subspecialty backup. The co-located Brenner Children's Hospital Emergency Department is North Carolina's first Level 1 pediatric trauma center. Our clinical affiliate physicians staff 13 EDs across the state. Together our Emergency Medicine physicians provide services to over 500,000 patients each year, with patient acuity in the 95th percentile and an admission rate of 30 percent. Our Emergency Medicine residency program is among the oldest in the country, and is highly competitive. Fellowships are offered in Emergency Medicine Research, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Emergency Medicine Administration/Leadership, EM Ultrasound, EMS and Wilderness Medicine. Our exceptional faculty are highly productive clinically and academically with a well-funded research program, more than 20 active research projects, and a very low faculty turnover rate.

ABOUT US

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.
