Letter from the Program Director

We are so excited you have considered to make Chapel Hill your home and join our amazing team. Our philosophy here at UNC is: "Great people make great doctors." This doctrine is best exemplified by the camaraderie displayed by our residents in their daily interactions with each other, their attendings, and fellow hospital staff. We strive to have a family atmosphere, as we believe this results in better, more compassionate care for our patients as well as happier residents. We are looking for well-rounded, passionate applicants who will continue to be involved as a resident in areas including but not limited to volunteerism, advocacy and leadership, research, and education. We are also looking for a diverse intern class, to reflect the diverse population of NC. If you choose to train at UNC, we want you to be personally fulfilled while becoming an excellent emergency medicine physician. If interested in our program, please feel free to contact me or any one of our faculty or residents with questions.
