Resident Life - The Social Side of Things

 The UNC Internal Medicine-Pediatrics program strives to have balance between work and play…and there is life outside of work! Since residency can be challenging, we pride ourselves in making sure that we are a family-friendly environment. We strive to make sure we are not just co-residents, but family.

Our residents are invited to the social events and activities of both categorical programs as well as unique Med-Peds events!
