I wish to welcome you to the residency programs at New Hanover Regional Medical Center. Our medical center became a teaching hospital in 1973 through an affiliation with South East Area Health Education Center (SEAHEC), and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine.
SEAHEC administers NHRMC's four accredited Graduate Medical Education programs: Internal Medicine, which includes a three-year categorical and a one-year preliminary residency; General Surgery, inclusive of a five-year General Surgery program and a one-year categorical program; Obstetrics and Gynecology, a four-year residency program; and a duly accredited MD/DO Family Medicine residency of three years. These programs create a network of opportunities for residency teaching, undergraduate medical teaching, and continuing education for healthcare providers in our region as well as a resource for community development and education.
Our full-time faculty, members of the UNC Chapel Hill School of Medicine, are permanently based in Wilmington and are responsible for the teaching programs at NHRMC. Additionally, a faculty consisting of private practicing physicians hold appointments at the UNC School of Medicine and participate actively in our teaching programs. They make substantial contributions to the daily conference schedule and consulting services. SEAHEC also provides clinical and community rotations for Health Sciences students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. I invite you to explore the following webpages and their content, and we stand ready to answer any questions or provide more information about our residency programs.
