Areas of Interest in Emergency Medicine: Global Health, Emergency Medical Services, Tactical
Hobbies: Power lifting and/or running, depending upon how much time and how many kids I have. Also reading theology and philosophy.
Why I Chose UNC: 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.

Why I Chose UNC: THE PEOPLE; we have the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the true pioneers in our field. We get a great experience at a large academic hospital and then supplement that with time at Wake where we learn large center community medicine and efficiency. Plus, finally being able to get away from those terrible northern winters.

Hobbies: Spending time with my wife and son, working out, Surfing, Swimming, and Traveling.
Why I Chose UNC: Growing up in North Carolina attending UNC has been a dream of mine for a very long time. During my final two years as a Flight Surgeon for the USAF I contacted, then program director, Dr. Kevin Biese with some questions about the program via email while I was deployed. To my surprise he not only answered each of my questions, but also invited me to come to UNC to meet with him once I got back stateside. No other program director I contacted was as accessible, kind, and genuinely interested in helping me meet my education goals to become the best EM physician possible as he was. Later when I rotated at UNC I found that every single resident, attending, and EM staff member shared the exact same mentality. During my interview at UNC that same genuine interest in me as a person and in helping me become the best EM physician possible was again found in Dr. Nikki Waller our current program director and all of the rest of the staff and residents. I was truly impressed that day, and am so thankful and excited to be a UNC EM resident.

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!

Hobbies: Sailing, Tennis, Guitar (learning), Hanging with Friends
Why I Chose UNC: Most residencies talk about great environments, but here at UNC the attendings foster genuinely friendly atmosphere of learning. The camaraderie here is especially remarkable for a program of such academic distinction. This environment was obvious from the very beginning of the interview day and made it a place where I wanted to be. Plus I am from North Carolina so the chance to come back to such a beautiful place was a huge bonus.

Why I Chose UNC: It has a little bit of everything: Academics, Community practice, lots of Peds, Research, EMS… you name it + this is a great place to live and raise a family + 3 hours to beach/mountains = a great all around program with the academic heft and numbers of sick patients that will make you a great all-around EM physician.

Medical School: University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Areas of Interest in Emergency Medicine: Global Health, Critical Care
Hobbies: Playing pick-up sports. Traveling. Bikes, kites, and boards (snow/surf). Grabbing a beer with friends and listening to some good jams.
Why I Chose UNC: I knew what to expect from my experience during medical school at UNC, which is first and foremost amazingly smart and friendly faculty and residents throughout the hospital and especially in the ED. The split time at UNC and WakeMed in Raleigh offer two distinct Emergency Medicine experiences, and allows my co-residents and I to live/work/play in 3 of the south east’s coolest up and coming cities (Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill). And come on, how many people will be able to say that they worked shifts with the Godmother of Emergency Medicine herself, Dr. Tintinalli?!
