Internal Medicine Resident Scholarship

CHEST annual meeting participantsUNC Health Blue Ridge Internal Medicine residents are involved in many scholarly activities. Since we are a ‘community hospital’ program, interested applicants often ask if we can provide the same academic opportunities as a university-based residency program. We can assure you there are numerous opportunities for participation in research and quality improvement projects for interested residents!

Many of our residents achieve publications during their residency training and all have opportunities to present their research, quality improvement work, or interesting clinical vignettes at regional and national meetings. Residents have easy access to research mentors and have support of our Resident Research committee.
