Meet the Residents
UNC was the convergence of all good things for me and my family. We lived just South of here when I was a Chaplain in the 82nd Airborne and loved visiting the many family-friendly things in the area, including the Museum of Life and Science and, dare I say, the Duke Gardens. We have some family, friends, and a church here, so we felt we would have great support. The teaching staff here is also stacked with world-renowned faculty from diverse backgrounds, more than I realized when I rotated here. Also, I didn’t even realize that WakeMed had one of the most amazing simulation centers I had ever run across. Beyond these things, I’m happy not to be somewhere stuck in rush hour every day when I would rather get home to be with my family."

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!"
