Our medical and dental teaching assistants are a vital aspect of our MED program each summer. The TA team attends lecture, leads labs, and assists with small group and case study sessions, along with leading office hours and test prep prior to exams. TA positions include:

  • subject specialists (biochemistry, dental theory, gross anatomy, histology, microbiology, and physiology)
  • tutoring
  • testing

Interest meetings will be held mid-December to discuss what the position entails, share experiences from former TAs, and answer any questions potential applicants may have. TA positions are available to first-year medical and dental students. If you have any questions about the position, please contact the Office of Scholastic Enrichment & Equity.

Application for 2021 MED Teaching Assistants are now available.

Applications are open to current MS1 medical students at UNC SOM and current dental students at the UNC Adams School of Dentistry. Please email Lisa Long at for an application.


Applications will be reviewed at the end of January through the beginning of February, and applicants will be notified about scheduling interviews. Instructions for scheduling interviews will be included in emails notifying students about the status of their application.
