Mary Nolan Hall, MD, FAAFP
The University of North Carolina appointed Mary Nolan Hall, MD, FAAFP, as associate dean for the UNC School of Medicine Charlotte Campus. Dr. Hall serves as Carolinas HealthCare System’s chief academic officer.
For more than 40 years, the System has provided clinical education to UNC School of Medicine students. In 2010, the institutions partnered to create a regional campus, UNC School of Medicine Charlotte Campus, at Carolinas Medical Center. The campus annually hosts approximately 50 full-time medical students who complete rotations across System facilities.
“This appointment reflects the commitment of two leading organizations to deliver nationally recognized academic and professional growth opportunities for medical students,” Dr. Hall said. “Carolinas HealthCare System’s diverse care locations allow students to learn and practice in rural and urban areas, alongside our award-winning providers and faculty.”
As associate dean of the Charlotte Campus, Dr. Hall works with Patricia White, MD, assistant dean of the Charlotte campus, to supervise student affairs, curriculum development and personnel and processes for medical student recruitment and admissions.
“Our evidence-based initiatives and resources allow students to work as part of a team, gaining well-rounded, patient-centered experiences they can use as the foundation for their medical careers,” Dr. White said.
Students spend their third year learning seven medical specialties within the System. The Charlotte Campus is the only UNC School of Medicine location that offers both a traditional and a longitudinal integrated curriculum (CLIC). CLIC was developed by faculty over two years and was implemented in 2013 to give students a more well-rounded clinical experience. By July 2016 the model will be included in the UNC School of Medicine curriculum for all students.
