Chief Resident Welcome

Welcome to UNC Anesthesiology! We are excited you are interested in our program and want to share with you some of the things that make UNC Anesthesiology such a special place to train.

The education we receive at UNC is among the best in the nation, but our favorite thing about our program is the people. We have close relationships with our co-residents from all years, and regularly get together outside of the hospital to enjoy the food, breweries, and outdoor scenery Chapel Hill and the surrounding area has to offer. We also love tailgating together before games during the fall football season, and of course, cheering on Tarheels basketball.

Not only are we supported by our co-residents throughout our training, but our faculty are all easily approachable and provide excellent mentorship throughout our time at UNC. This mentorship starts during intern year, when we are paired with an anesthesia faculty mentor. Though there are multiple other opportunities for formal mentorship throughout our time as residents, informal mentorship happens on a daily basis. We love training at a program where faculty take genuine interest in our success not only as future anesthesiologists but also as people outside of the hospital.

As the state hospital, UNC provides a diverse patient population. We learn how to care for complex patients, starting our intern year when we rotate through medical, surgical, and pediatric specialties, and continuing into our anesthesia training years. We know that when we leave UNC Anesthesiology we will be prepared for our next career steps, whether that is fellowship or general practice.

These are just a few of the reasons we love training at UNC Anesthesiology. Please reach out to any of us with any questions about our program. We look forward to meeting you, and go Heels!
