We are committed to ensuring that all of our residents feel supported while at UNC. Each resident is paired with a mentor. Mentor-mentee pairs meet regularly to talk through how things are going, think about career choices and share a hard day over a cup of coffee. In partnership with the Office of Inclusive Excellence, we have specific professional development and mentoring opportunities for underrepresented residents through the Resident Diversity Initiative.
Resident Diversity Initiative
The UNC Health Care Resident Diversity Initiative is composed of residents, fellows, and attending physicians who are committed to maintaining and expanding the diversity of UNC Hospitals’ residency and fellowship programs as well as its faculty. The mission is to promote minority representation in the hospital’s various training programs and to support a culture that cherishes and values diversity in the hospital community.
