UNC Hospitals’ residency in obstetrics and gynecology was ranked No. 1 of 11 programs that were included.

“This recognition by Doximity affirms our department’s ‘culture’ and dedication to education,” said Daniel Clarke-Pearson, MD, chair of obstetrics and gynecology. “We are fortunate to be able to recruit excellent residents who are eager learners.”

UNC’s family medicine residency was ranked No. 2, otolaryngology was ranked No. 3 and psychiatry was ranked No. 3. Other UNC Hospitals residencies included were internal medicine (No. 8), urology (No. 5), surgery (No. 6), pediatrics(No. 5), orthopaedic surgery (No. 7) and anesthesiology (No. 8).
