Freischlag, who arrived at Wake Forest Baptist just this month, already oversees the academic health system, which includes the School of Medicine.
“Our School of Medicine is well positioned for the future thanks to Dean Abraham, and I want to offer my thanks to him for his many contributions,” Freischlag is quoted as saying the Triad Business Journal.  “Going forward, I know I can count on the help and guidance of many faculty and staff in the clinical enterprise and look forward to working together to achieve Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center’s highest aspirations.”
