Preventive Medicine Residency in Cancer Prevention and Control

The UNC Preventive Medicine Residency Program has received funding from the American Cancer Society since 2001 for preventive medicine residency training in cancer prevention and control.

Preventive medicine residency training consists of two years - an academic year, during which residents enroll in the School of Public Health for a Master of Public Health degree, and a practicum year, during which residents complete several activities, including a major research project and a rotation at the Cancer Prevention and Control Branch of the NC Division of Public Health.

Coursework, the research project and the public health agency rotation will all focus on cancer prevention and control. Residents will take part in the activities of the UNC Lineberger Cancer Control Education Program and will have an opportunity to work with nationally-known faculty in the Schools of Medicine and Public Health and the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Residents will receive a stipend, tuition and fees, and support for travel and research expenses.
