Name: Michael Melson, MD

Professional Interests: Sports Medicine, Prosthetics & Orthotics, Occupational Medicine.

Hobbies: Working out, playing with my dog, fishing, kayaking, playing basketball or ultimate frisbee, watching sports or movies.

Favorite part of the program: Well-rounded nature and family feel.

Favorite parts of living in the Triangle: I’m still getting a feel for the area as we’ve only been here a few weeks, but I love the mix of rural and city life already. There are an abundance of outdoor activities around Chapel Hill with the benefits of larger cities (Durham/Raleigh) close by as well!
