UNC Health Physicians,

Today, March 30, we celebrate National Doctors’ Day. Thank you to all our physicians across UNC Health for your commitment to our patients, teammates and communities!

While the mechanics of delivering healthcare are challenging, we believe strongly that your work and your service to our state is incredibly valuable. We hope you can take a few minutes to watch these three videos featuring doctors from across UNC Health sharing why they chose a career in medicine and reading comments from patients about the care they provide:

  • Video #1: Hear from our doctors at UNC Health Lenoir, UNC Health Johnston, UNC Health Nash, UNC Health Wayne, and UNC Physicians Network
  • Video #2: Hear from our doctors at UNC Faculty Physicians, UNC Health Alliance, UNC Health Rockingham, UNC Health Southeastern, and UNC Health Blue Ridge
  • Video #3: Hear from our doctors at UNC Faculty Physicians, UNC Hospitals, UNC Health Rex, UNC Physicians Network, UNC Health Caldwell, Pardee UNC Health Care, and UNC School of Medicine

We want to make it easier for you to do what you love by ensuring that UNC Health is among the very best places to practice medicine. UNC Physicians is working on multiple large projects to improve our practice environment, and we encourage you to visit our new UNC Physicians Intranet site* to see our current focus areas, key initiatives, resources and more.

We also want your feedback and ideas. For Doctors’ Day (and every day), please share what is working well, but also your ideas for improvement, with us at

Your commitment – and the Carolina Care you provide – is an inspiration to us all. We hope you have a wonderful Doctors’ Day!
