At UNC Radiology, we are committed to the mental, emotional, and physical wellness of our residents and fellows. Happy, health trainees are in the best position to learn and flourish.  We support and encourage our residents to be well-rounded in their personal and professional lives and we foster a close-knit residency group.  Our residents value education, work experiences and free time!
