One of the unique aspects of our emergency medicine residency is the opportunity to work at multiple clinical sites across the triangle. Our residents work in the academic institution of UNC Main Campus, the community sites of UNC Hillsborough and Wakemed North, as well as gain a community experience that has an urban, county feel at WakeMed Raleigh. With the diverse clinical site experience, our residents gain exposure to the practice of emergency medicine in a variety of settings, this ultimately prepares them to be ready for any job in the country after residency. While working at these multiple clinical sites, our residents work with a diverse faculty group. Our faculty has a wide range of clinical experience in the community, academics, county, as well as also are involved in many of their own unique niches of emergency medicine.

The UNC Hillsborough and UNC Main Campus emergency departments are staffed by a core faculty at UNC as well as occasional adjunct faculty. The UNC core faculty is heavily involved in resident didactics, on-shift learning and helping to mentor residents interested in different areas of emergency medicine, such as EMS, Global Health, geriatrics.

The WakeMed North and WakeMed Raleigh campuses are staffed by the independent, democratic emergency medicine group, Wake Emergency Physicians PA, WEPPA. WEPPA is comprised of 200 Emergency Medicine specialists, 112 of whom are board-certified or board eligible in emergency medicine. Residents tend to work with a core group of WEPPA faculty at the WakeMed Campuses and get to know them well over the three years in residency. In addition, residents also work at the WakeMed Children’s ED which has 9 physicians certified in Pediatric Emergency Medicine. The WakeMed adult and children’s faculty are actively involved in resident didactics, on-shift learning and simulation.
