The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is committed to the principle of equal opportunity. We believe that the richness of a diverse workplace drives all to their very best, professionally and personally. Cultural competence is not only about relating to patients and their families; it is about working in a culturally rich environment. The patient population we serve at UNC Hospitals is remarkably diverse and, as such, diversity in our residency, fellowship, nursing, faculty and staff enables us to better serve their needs. Promoting diversity in our residency programs is the right thing for our institution, and enables us to provide the very best in clinical care, education and research to the remarkable patients that we serve. It is the policy of this University not to discriminate on the basis of race, gender, color, national origin, religion, or handicap with regard to its students, employees, or applicants for admission or employment. Federal law also prohibits such discrimination. Any complaints alleging failure of this institution to follow this policy should be brought to the attention of Ms. Susan H. Ehringhaus, Assistant to the Chancellor, at (919) 962-1219.
Stipends are commensurate with level of training in this institution. Benefits include health insurance, UNC Hospitals’ professional liability insurance, cost of North Carolina medical licensure, generous paid time off, support for travel to national meetings, and a book allowance.
