Location & Facilities
UNC Hospitals are located on the campus of the University of North Carolina. The town of Chapel Hill is a university town and provides the advantages of small-town residential living. It is noted for its charm and beauty, and the climate is pleasantly mild. Proximity of the hospital to the University Psychology Department as well as to Duke University (l0 miles away) and North Carolina State University (30 miles away) provides an active professional environment. Colloquia and lectures at both UNC and Duke are open to our trainees.
Recreational facilities abound in this region. Chapel Hill has golf courses, tennis courts, a gymnasium and two university swimming pools, as well as other swimming facilities. In addition, the university holds a license from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for use of a 230-acre peninsula on the western shore of Kerr Lake, a vast reservoir, about 65 miles north of Chapel Hill that has over 800 miles of shoreline. This tract is reserved for recreational use by the students, employees, and faculty of the university where fishing, picnicking, camping, and boating are available. A public lake, Jordan Lake, is also nearby.
The facilities of the Department of Psychiatry and the wide range of outpatient programs and clinics are extensive, with a variety of options for natural observation of clinical situations and for close supervision. The Department houses multiple well-equipped research laboratories. There are large university and health affairs libraries, with excellent digital collections and access. Interns have access to the Department’s network of computers.
