Meet the Residents
Friendly, supportive, family-feel with amazing, genuine people. Dr. Waller and the rest of the faculty and residents were so open and down-to-earth on the interview day. UNC has a great reputation with strong opportunities in academic and community EM as well as in research and education. Plus, NC is the perfect location for my family with lots to do, fairly mild weather and beautiful scenery."

Excellent teaching from incredible faculty, family atmosphere and camaraderie between everyone, diverse clinical training with both academic and community hospitals. Plus, the Triangle area is great and close to the mountains and beach."

After meeting the residents, faculty and staff on interview day, I knew that I would love it at UNC. Everyone was so friendly and committed to the success of the program and wellbeing of the residents. As for the curriculum, I really liked the combination of academic and community emergency department settings all while providing strong pediatric and ultrasound training. Not to mention that the leadership and reputation at UNC speaks for itself in terms of ability to produce exceptional emergency medicine physicians. It also didn’t hurt that the geographic location is top-notch with a warm climate and the opportunity to take day trips to the ocean and mountains!"

The people! I did not meet a group of residents/faculty who were more down to earth than here at UNC. I value the split training experience at WakeMed and UNC as it allows exposure to a wide breadth of varying pathologies and practice environments. Additionally, the resources and faculty at UNC will let me explore the many different career paths available in emergency medicine. Finally, The Triangle is a rapidly growing and changing area. It is exciting to now be apart of that growth and escape the never-ending “greyness” of the Midwestern winters."
