For more than 40 years, Carolinas HealthCare System has played an active role in providing clinical education for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill medical students. In a pioneering move, UNC partnered with the System as a satellite campus, formally naming it UNC School of Medicine-Charlotte Campus in 2010.
Led by Dr. Patricia S. White, physician director, students at UNC School of Medicine-Charlotte Campus learn from a dedicated team of physician-educators in the dynamic environment of a leading urban medical center.
Third year students spend their year in eight specialty areas at Carolinas HealthCare System, in either a traditional block or longitudinal integrated curriculum. With advice and guidance of both Charlotte mentors and Chapel Hill advisors, students plan a fourth year of medical school that may include some of the 100+ courses offered in Charlotte or the many rotations offered across North Carolina.
UNC School of Medicine-Charlotte Campus offers:
- One-on-one attention with attending and resident physicians
- No. 1 ranked clerkships in the state for 2011-2012 in internal medicine, family medicine and psychiatry
- High patient volume, small learner count
- State-of-the-art simulation center, where learners practice procedures and care of the acutely ill patient
- Diverse learning experiences
- Organization that is dedicated to quality, community and innovation
