Years of hard work and dreams were folded into envelopes, decorative boxes and other means of message delivery. On March 17th, medical students discovered where their career journey would take them for residency.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Internal Medicine Residency Program paired 27 categorical residents, two Physician Scientist Training Program (PSTP) residents, ten preliminary residents, and six Medicine/Pediatrics residents.

This curriculum teaches internists how to provide compassionate, team-based care while incorporating the ideals of life-long learning and teaching into clinical decisions. The program also has a 100 percent ABIM pass rate, which is calculated by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) utilizing annual reports from each Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited internal medicine residency program.
