Dr. Roper with students.

As a leader in education, patient care and research, UNC School of Medicine is called upon to make significant contributions to the health of all humanity.

Today at UNC Medicine we educate our physicians for tomorrow’s practice—in interprofessional teams, with advanced simulations and real patient encounters, and with nationally recognized faculty in state-of-the-art facilities—to help them adapt to the changing needs of delivering health care for all.

Ranked #1 nationally in primary care, we are committed to improving the wellbeing of our patients. First and foremost, we serve our state. It’s our home, our classroom, our clinic, where we treat diseases, forge partnerships and solve problems. And while our hearts are rooted firmly in North Carolina, Tar Heel Doctors serve across the state, from the mountains to the sea, and beyond.

Your investment today in our medical education mission will forever help UNC boldly meet tomorrow’s challenges, build loyalty and inspire the next generation of Tar Heel Doctors while we continue to provide a premiere medical education at a nationally competitive value.

With your help, during The Campaign for Carolina, we will advance medical education through:

A New UNC Medical Education Building

Once completed, a modern medical education building will rest on our historic foundation and expand our ability to graduate more loyal, compassionate physicians educated across the state to serve the health of our population. Your investment will shape the future of health care in North Carolina and beyond, one doctor at a time.

Student Enrichment

Changing the face of health care delivery will take the investment of loyal alumni and concerned citizens working together to inspire the next generation of Tar Healers—through scholarships, local and global service, and professional development to educate physician leaders and improve health outcomes, one student at a time.

Faculty Investment

Behind every excellent medical student are faculty members willing to translate science and clinical skills for an ever-changing health care environment through a foundation of learning by coils and blocks, innovation, technology and research. The strength of our education is built upon engaged faculty committed to shaping compassionate physicians, one teaching moment at a time. Through Professorships, Teaching Professorships and Excellence Funds your support of our faculty will transform the next generation of Tar Heel Doctors.

Loyalty in Action

During the Campaign for Carolina, the Medical Alumni Loyalty Fund will continue to provide critical annual funding to meet our greatest education mission needs: funding scholarships, fostering academic excellence for students and faculty, and building community—here at Carolina and for years to come.
