We educate and train medical students, residents, fellows, and graduate students in the same way they will practice – in interprofessional teams, with advanced simulations, and real patient encounters. Our nationally recognized faculty teach students in state-of-the-art facilities to help them adapt to the changing needs of delivering health care. To change the face of health care, we depend on the investments of loyal alumni, grateful patients and families, and concerned citizens. We must come together to inspire the next generation of Tar Healers working together to improve health outcomes one patient at a time across North Carolina and beyond.

Visit the initiatives to see how our priorities come to life and deliver life-changing benefits for people in North Carolina and beyond.
