How to Apply

Physicians who are eligible to apply to the program are those who have completed training in an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-approved primary care residency, such training being acceptable to the American Board of Preventive Medicine as equivalent training to the clinical year of a Preventive Medicine Residency Program.

Many of our trainees have already completed a primary care residency and most have completed at least two years. However, resident applicants with one year of clinical training and additional expertise and/or experience relevant to occupational medicine may be considered.

Final acceptance to the program requires a full license to practice medicine in the State of North Carolina. Military physicians desiring additional training in hyperbarics and undersea medicine are encouraged to apply. Minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service beginning in August. Interviews are scheduled in October and November with an informal match in December for the following July start date.
