About This Program
The UNC Preventive Medicine Residency trains physicians to practice and research public health and clinical population health in communities and other populations. Our areas of focus are clinical population health management, health disparities/underserved populations, cancer prevention and control, and clinical preventive services. The UNC Preventive Medicine Residency has existed for over 40 years and is headquartered in the Department of Family Medicine at UNC Chapel Hill. The residency is a two-year program accredited by the ACGME. The first year is academic and focused on MPH studies, with all residents ultimately earning a degree through an accredited School of Public Health. The practicum year involves mandatory public health agency and healthcare administration rotations. Other curricular elements include weekly didactic sessions, a research experience, a teaching rotation, clinical experience, and additional elective rotations as appropriate. The UNC PMR serves as a major pipeline for the public health workforce in North Carolina.
