The UNC Preventive Medicine Residency offers two years of training, the academic year and the practicum year. The academic year consists of full-time course work in one of several departments of the School of Public Health, leading to the MPH degree.

Most successful applicants to the UNC Preventive Medicine Residency have already completed a residency in a primary care specialty.
