Word from the Residency Program Directors

Excellence in clinical, educational, and scholarly missions - the UNC Department of Radiology does it all, and does so with Carolina style!

Located in Chapel Hill on the campus of the nation's oldest public university, the UNC Medical Center is a state of the art 803-bed facility caring for more than 37,000 patients each year.  Consisting of the NC Cancer Hospital, NC Children's Hospital, NC Memorial Hospital, NC Neurosciences Hospital, and NC Women's Hospital, UNC Hospitals is a premier academic medical center operated by and for the people of North Carolina.  Add to that impressive infrastructure the UNC School of Medicine, one of the nation's leading public schools of medicine.  UNC SOM has a proud tradition of excellence in educating tomorrow's health care professionals and biomedical researchers and excellence in delivering the best medical care with sensitivity, compassion and genuine interest in people and their families.

Our residency offers an innovative and integrated curriculum in state of the art facilities.  Daily conference room formal lectures and reading room case-based learning, monthly Grand Rounds, weekly Multidisciplinary conferences, electronic educational resources, resident attendance at the American Institute of Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) and Core exam prep - all are keenly emphasized in our mission to educate.  Our renowned faculty are at the top of their respective subspecialty fields.  Further, in professional societies, research achievement, and state and national leadership roles, key faculty have uniquely networked with peer academic institutions and premiere radiology practice groups across the nation.  UNC Radiology is, to say the least, a resource-rich environment for you as a prospective trainee.

On site, on point, on your way to professional and personal greatness - the Carolina Way!  We at UNC look forward to meeting you.
