Expanding Access to Expert Care

We are committed to aligning the education, training and retention of primary care physicians to rural and underserved areas in North Carolina. We do this by building pipeline programs that support students from these areas on a pathway to medicine. Additionally, the interprofessional education we offer aims to grow opportunities and support initiatives for students to care for underserved and vulnerable populations both locally and globally.

A new medical education building like Roper Hall will add resources, greatly enhance the learning experience and expand our capacity to serve all. From helping us to welcome more students to meet the growing demand for physicians to connecting faculty, students and patients across the state for greater collaborative learning and care.

Transforming the Educational Experience

Roper Hall will allow the School of Medicine to accomplish and achieve much in medical education. From expanding class sizes comfortably to meet the growing demand for physicians in North Carolina without sacrificing quality. To facilitating innovative teaching with a facility aligned to our comprehensive curriculum. To allowing for longitudinal learning and integrated core clinical rotations for our students training in Chapel Hill and across the state. What’s more, we’ve planned the new medical education building with a 50-year vision in mind for long-term flexibility, effectiveness and relevance.
