As part of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine and the Department of Surgery, the North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center provides rigorous training for medical students, general surgery residents, burn fellows, military personnel, and all areas of safety, emergency and rescue personnel.

Medical Students

Burn surgery rotations are available to third and fourth year medical students at the School of Medicine and visiting four year medical students. Students learn about all aspects of patient care through burn surgery clerkships and fourth year courses.

General Surgery Residents

General Surgery residents complete rotations in burn surgery and have the opportunity to become acting chief residents in post-graduate year three.

General Surgery Residents


Burn surgery fellows gain multidisciplinary training to treat all the complex medical problems burn patients experience. Fellows receive intensive clinical training as well as engage in ongoing research projects.
