UNC Health

UNC Health was created to meet the health needs of North Carolinians by training physicians, creating new science, pioneering novel treatments and improving health outcomes in all 100 counties in the state. As part of a true public university, UNC Health works for the good of all humanity, keeping compassion for all at our core. We deliver care with empathy. We secure healthier futures for everyone—and by doing so, the promise of better lives. From ensuring North Carolina’s underserved rural communities have access to primary care physicians to improving AIDS outcomes in Africa; from discovering new cancer treatments to predicting the onset of autism; we will lead and excel with empathy and expertise in patient care, education, advocacy and research.
