The Pediatrics Residency Program at UNC is committed to providing a strong foundation of general pediatric education with broad subspecialty exposure. We take pride in the balance of our program, preparing residents for careers in general pediatrics, pediatric subspecialty training, and public health to practice in academic or community settings..
To accomplish our goals of providing such breadth of exposure, we expose our residents to pediatric clinical care in many settings. Our residents rotate in their primary care continuity clinic, other public health clinics, community hospitals and our tertiary care center. The unique opportunity to train in a major tertiary care center and two community hospitals provides useful insights into the practice of pediatrics in different communities, promotes the ability to make independent clinical judgments, and provides the experiences and role models necessary to make solid career decisions.
