Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learn more about UNC Radiology Residency! At UNC, our program promises not only excellent clinical training, amazing research, and global health opportunities, but also lifetime friends and mentors.

UNC Hospitals is a Level 1 trauma center with multiple hospitals on-site including our state-of-the-art Lineberger Cancer Center, North Carolina Women’s Hospital, North Carolina Children’s Hospital, and North Carolina Neurosciences Hospital. Our department also services UNC Hospitals Hillsborough Campus and multiple off-site imaging centers and clinics. At UNC, we provide complex care to patients from all over the state, allowing for a large volume of studies and a breadth of pathology to learn. This combined with independent overnight call allows our residents to leave UNC well versed in all radiologic subspecialties and confident in their abilities to interpret high volume and complex imaging.

UNC Radiology is committed to resident education, research, and wellness as exemplified by opportunities to attend national conferences, a book fund for resident educational resources, and many social and wellness events throughout the year. What primarily sets our residency apart is the people and the spirit of our department. Our residents are from diverse backgrounds and varied life experiences that we value and support.

At the root of our values is a philosophy that legendary UNC basketball coach Dean Smith instilled in his players over the course of his amazing career — “The Carolina Way.” This philosophy is aimed at fostering a culture of excellence built on the foundation of commitment to others and integrity.

Please take some time to explore our website further and learn about who we are. We welcome any questions about the department, our Diagnostic or Interventional Radiology programs, or life in Chapel Hill. We hope to meet you soon so you can experience “The Carolina Way” firsthand.
