“I chose UNC because I bleed Carolina blue. Having obtained my undergraduate, Master’s and medical degrees all in Chapel Hill, I had every reason to leave and explore another institution.  However after interviewing across the country, I realized that I wouldn’t receive better training than I would in the southern part of heaven.  Outstanding mentors, countless opportunities for cross-campus collaborations, and the support and friendship of my Carolina family laid the foundation for the career I have today.  To quote legendary UNC basketball coach Dean Smith, ‘caring for one another and building relationships should be the most important goal, no matter what vocation you are in.’ UNC will instill these principles in you, and they continue to guide my career.”

“I chose UNC because I thought that the residents were great when I interviewed. They were friendly and truly seemed to enjoy each other as friends and colleagues. I also liked the hands-on approach to learning as I absorb more by doing. Additionally, I liked the Triangle area and miss it every day! It’s always great to see my UNC colleagues at meetings like RSNA and ACR each year!”

“I am now in my 13th year of learning as a Tarheel, so pleased I was accepted for fellowship here too. Once finished, I will have spent half my memorable-life studying, training, and learning “The Carolina Way,” a term popularized by legendary basketball coach Dean Smith. UNC brings people with passion for their practice together, creating networks that can achieve amazing things for our state and beyond.

The institution has taken many chances on me over the years, and I have grown and accomplished thanks to these opportunities and the dedication of my mentors. We have first-rate technology, funding, Undergraduate and Graduate degree programs, athletics, libraries, laboratories, etc., but it is our faith in The Carolina Way that makes us unique and pushes us to be better each day. Lux libertas. Go Heels!”
