All UNC resident physicians are expected to matriculate through the Office of International Activities (OIA) in coordination with the GME Office. The GME Office must approve all international rotations and receives most of the required paperwork. We are happy to assist you with the planning of your international rotation to ensure that all GME Office and UNC policies are met and to help you navigate this process.  The first thing you should do is read over the UNC Resident International Rotation Policy provided in the GME requirements below. For a quick overview of what you need to do for the GME Office and for the OIA, see the GME and OIA Process Flowchart for Residents.

We want to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable experience.  Please email for an appointment (shay_slifko@med.unc.edu) stop by our office, or ask us to meet you at Starbucks or another convenient location in the hospital! All GME forms should be turned into Kathryn Hill (kshill@unch.unc.edu) at the GME Office. All OIA forms should be turned into Shay Slifko () in the Office of International Activities.

Conducting Research?

Any resident who is engaged in the planning, conduct or analysis of research involving human subjects MUST complete CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative training (see http://research.unc.edu/offices/human-research-ethics) and have, or be included in, the IRB approval of any research. Residents who fail to comply with this policy will not be allowed to proceed with the international rotation.
