Ten residency programs at the University of North Carolina Hospitals were ranked among the top residencies in the South in results released by Doximity and U.S. News & World Report.

Following the program’s ranking in the top 20 urology residencies nationwide in the first-ever national evaluation of residency programs this past fall, UNC Hospitals’ residency in urology was ranked in the top 5 “Residencies in the South” in the specialty.

“This recognition affirms our department’s culture and dedication to education,” said Eric Wallen, MD, Professor and Urology Residency Program Director. “We are fortunate to be able to recruit outstanding residents and we are grateful for this recognition from our peer physicians in the Doximity network.”

Other UNC residencies that were ranked in the top ten in the South include: UNC’s obstetrics and gynecology residency, family medicine residency, otolaryngology, psychiatry, internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, orthopedic surgery, and anesthesiology.

The rankings were calculated based on evaluations from more than 50,000 board-certified U.S. physicians, who evaluated 3,691 residency training programs nationwide across 20 specialties.
