Eryka Gayle, MD


Medical School:
Vanderbilt University School of Medicine


Live theater, Zumba, cooking, abandoning coffee and re-exploring its caffeinated deliciousness when I desperately need it….mmm…every time is like the first time.


Why I chose UNC:

  1. It’s an amazing program with a long legacy of producing leaders in the field of EM.
  2. It is in a great location- NC is beautiful and (relatively) warm.
  3. It felt like a family on my interview day. People really seemed to like each other here. The administrators are brilliant but still humble, teachable, and approachable. The residents were/are among the kindest and funniest I met on the interview trail and they really look out for each other.
