University of North Carolina School of MedicineFor more than 40 years, Atrium Health 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. Heather Tarantino, assistant dean and director of the Charlotte campus, 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 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
