Dr. Alice Chuang, MD, MEd

Professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
Clinical Assistant Professor, Department of Radiology

Dr. Chuang obtained her undergraduate degree in Applied Mathematics at Harvard University. She then returned to her hometown of Memphis, Tennessee to complete both medical school and residency training at the University of Tennessee. She stayed there as an Instructor for 2 years before accepting an appointment as Assistant Professor at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.

During her faculty appointment at the University of Tennessee, she served as clerkship director and made many contributions to both resident and student curricula. She was a recipient of teaching awards both as a resident and as faculty, winning the APGO Excellence in Teaching Award in 2002.

At UNC-Chapel Hill, she was again awarded the APGO Excellence in Teaching Award in 2006 and has won numerous departmental and school-wide teaching awards from 2003 through the present, distinguishing herself in both the basic science curriculum and the clinical curriculum. She has served as a course director for a variety of courses, required and elective, through all phases of the curriculum, including the Clerkship Director role. She has also served as co-director for committees governing both pre-clinical and clinical curricula. She has particular interests in teaching professionalism, preparing learners for life after medical school and residency and improving the learning environment. She credits her career achievements to her extraordinary mentors and her career satisfaction to a community, both local and national, of amazing colleagues and friends. She credits her sanity and occasional insanity to her two children, ages 11 and 9 and her husband, who is coincidentally also an obstetrician. Her biggest recent accomplishment is completing her Master of Education in April 2016 and her tenure as a Medical Alumni Distinguished Teaching Professor in 2017.

She currently serves as the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs.
