We are seeking applicants who aspire to become future leaders in the field of endocrinology. Our division is well known for providing outstanding clinical care to the citizens of North Carolina. Many of our faculty members are nationally and internationally known for their outstanding work in both clinical and research realms. Graduates of our program consistently hold outstanding positions in academia, clinical practice, and industry.
Interviewing and selecting our fellows is a serious endeavor in which our entire faculty and staff engage. We seek applicants who have trained in rigorous internal medicine programs and have demonstrated a commitment to the field of endocrinology. Our program does sponsor J-1 visa holders. At the time of application, foreign nationals must hold a J-1 visa. We do not accept conditional guarantees that the individual may or may not have a J-1 visa prior to or at the time of fellowship. We are unable to sponsor H1-B, E-B or O-1 visas, including EAD (Employment Authorization Document).
How Many Fellowship Positions Are Available
Each year we offer three fellowship positions. We typically have 6-7 fellows in the program at any one time.

We participate in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Applicants can apply electronically through ERAS to programs of their choice. Through ERAS, we require the following application materials:
- Curriculum Vitae
- Personal Statement
- USMLE test scores steps I and II (III if available). We also consider D.O. applicants and therefore accept COMLEX scores

UNC Endocrinology Adheres to the “All In Match” Policy
Along with most other academic institutions, we participate in the National Residency Match Program (NRMP). It is our opinion that “the Match” provides a streamlined and equitable system for pairing prospective fellows with fellowship programs. Because we believe that all programs benefit from participation in the Match, we do not fill our fellowship positions outside of “the Match.”
Additional details about the “All In Match” Policy can be found here.
