WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Christopher J. Godshall, M.D., a vascular surgeon at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, has been awarded the Brooks Scholarship in Academic Medicine.

Godshall is an assistant professor of vascular and endovascular surgery at Wake Forest Baptist. He has been with Wake Forest Baptist since 2008 and is certified by the American Board of Surgery in both General Surgery and Vascular Surgery. He received his medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pa., and completed his residency at University of Louisville in Kentucky and his fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis.
