Residency Program

Last year the UNC Family Medicine Residency program was ranked number two in the nation by US News & World Report. But we are so much more than our rankings. We strive to provide our residents with the highest quality clinical medical education available. But it is also our goal to help young doctors learn to listen and understand their patients -- we teach them what it means to practice in a patient-centered medical home.

Welcome! As your Residency Director, I am committed to making Family Medicine residency training the experience of a lifetime. I am pleased that you are taking the time to explore the UNC Family Medicine Residency web site and hope that you find all the information you need to assist you in your search for the "right" residency program.

Our residency program is guided by an educational vision that champions the idea that Family Medicine training should provide a true full-scope experience through all three years of residency, preparing our graduates for any possible clinical venue that family physicians are found.

Since 2011, I have had the privilege of leading the UNC Family Medicine Residency Program.  Together with our outstanding faculty and staff, I continue to wave a passionate flag for our discipline, and work constantly to bring new levels of excellence to the UNC Family Medicine tradition. We are proud of the innovations and the position of national leadership that we can offer candidates. Please enjoy your cyber-stay with us and let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Our residents are strong clinicians, excellent teachers, and critical thinkers, much like the faculty that help in their training.

I am proud to serve as the assistant residency director, under the leadership of Dr. Page and in collaboration with our incredible faculty and staff. UNC Family Medicine is a leader in the field of Family Medicine as well as within the University of North Carolina medical community.
