Directions (Clinical Rotations)
UNC Hospitals Laboratories
All laboratories are on the first floor of the main hospital.
Veterans Administration (VA) Medical Center Laboratories
When you are facing the hospital you will see a Patient Entrance and the Ambulance Entrance. The map below shows the elevators which are nearest the ED (brown elevators). If you want to enter there you should see an information desk with greeters who can help you.
Another option is to follow the open walkway near the dropoff circle & flagpole. When you go through the doors at the end of the walkway you will see Starbucks to your left, and directly across from that are the blue elevators. Labs are on the 3rd floor, follow the signs in the hallways.
