Graduate Medical Education

Joe PinoOn behalf of Novant Health and the faculty and staff of our Graduate Medical Education Programs, I want to welcome you!

Residency training is an exciting time. The transition from medical student to resident is a period of tremendous growth. Our faculty is committed to seeing each of our trainees develop the knowledge, skill and ability expected of a successful, independent physician. With this in mind, our team has developed systems of support, like our comprehensive wellness program as one example, to help you achieve this goal.

If you should have you have any questions about our residency training programs, our hospital or the region we serve and call home, please feel free to contact me or one of the members of our team.
