NRSA Fellows Jonathon Yun, MD and Chineme Enyioha, MD, with fellowship director Don Pathman, MD, MPH

The NRSA Primary Care Research Fellowship aims to train primary care physicians for academic careers that emphasize research. The two-to three-year fellowship provides participants with the knowledge, skills and experience to pursue an individual research program. Fellows establish a research foundation through course work in the various departments of UNC’s Gillings School of Global Public Health and seminars in the School of Medicine’s NC TraCS Translational and Clinical Research Curriculum, and reinforced through fellows’ research projects, weekly works-in-progress seminars, and mentoring by clinical and research faculty.

The fellowship is based in the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research, a large, multi-disciplinary research unit on campus. To learn more, visit the fellowship page here.
