Welcome to UNC. We are excited to have you visit with our program and sincerely hope that you get the most out of this day that you can. Applicants chosen to interview are a highly selected group – we would welcome any and all of you to our program! Our goal for the day is not to “grill” you, but rather to allow you the opportunity to determine whether or not UNC is the right fit for you as you begin the process of building your career.

With this goal in mind, we have arranged the interview day to allow you as much opportunity as possible to learn about UNC, our program, and our people.

During the course of the day, you will interview with one of our selected faculty members. You will also have the opportunity to meet with one of our chief residents, rising chief residents, or fellows in addition to having small group time with the Program Director. You will see our morning report (resident led sessions that we have four mornings a week), and will have the opportunity to attend one of our didactic noon conferences or our EBM conference.

After lunch, our residents will take small groups of applicants out for coffee – part tour, part respite, and more time with our residents.

We hope that you enjoy the day!
