The UNC Preventive Medicine Residency offers two years of training; the academic year and the practicum year. The academic year consists of full-time coursework in one of several departments of the School of Public Health, leading to the MPH degree. The practicum year is a closely supervised experience that primarily involves the completion of a specific preventive medicine research project and an experience in a public health agency. Most successful applicants to the UNC Preventive Medicine Residency have already completed a residency in a primary care specialty.
