The School of Medicine established an Office of Inclusive Excellence in 2017, which provides coordination, oversight and leadership of the UNC SOM’s equity and inclusion programs.
The UNC Department of Emergency Medicine and the UNC EM Residency Program aim to recruit faculty and residents to provide medical care to our diverse patient population. We participate the UNC School of Medicine Resident Diversity Initiative, Carolina First Look Program, MED program, and Summer Science Enrichment Program. Students interested in rotating at UNC may apply for the UNC SOM Larry D. Keith Scholarship and our own visiting student scholarship.

Women in Medicine

We are fortunate to have numerous amazing female attendings on faculty, many of whom serve as department leaders, including Dr. Judith Tintinalli, Chair Emeritus; Dr. Jane Brice, Chair and EMS Fellowship Director; Dr. Nikki Binz, Residency Director; Dr. Christina Shenvi, Assistant Residency Director; Dr. Sarah Stahmer, Ultrasound Director; Dr. Tracy Deselm, Medical Student Advisor; and Dr. Eugenia Quackenbush, Division Director of Clinical Research. We have created a “Shemergency” group, who meets several times a year to discuss issues women face in medicine, support each other, and enjoy each other’s company. We also have many female alumnae in leadership positions, including Dr. Cheri Hobgood, former SAEM president and Chair of Emergency Medicine at Indiana University.
