Third year students spend half of the year rotating in modified- block, in-patient specialty areas and the other half of the year rotating with community preceptors in a 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
  • Top-ranked third-year clerkships
  • 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
