Why I Chose UNC:
The people here are amazing. They have created an incredible culture of support and encouragement while challenging you to become the best EM physician possible. I felt welcomed here and that they cared about me beyond just being another resident. Also, you get invaluable experiences by working at the community hospital WakeMed in Raleigh in addition to Chapel Hill. Last but not least it’s an incredible place to live. There are always things going on in the triangle; plus you have the beach 2 hours away in one direction and the mountains 2 hours away in the other!
