Our program at Carolinas Medical Center (CMC), part of Atrium Health, has some very unique assets that can truly help you excel on your specific path of mastery of caring for people in their time of need. One of the most important of these assets is our unique perspective and mission. At CMC, we perceive all of our residents as being leaders today: not just potentially in the future, but currently. It has been said that the defining characteristic of all leaders is courage. Regardless of the career path a physician chooses for herself or himself, she or he will be a leader. Our mission is to promote the development of physician leaders who have the courage to care for all patients everywhere.
As emergency physicians, it takes courage to direct a resuscitation, to perform emergent procedures, and to take action when uncomfortable. It also takes courage to ask why, to look for answers, and to be questioned. Most importantly, it takes courage to advocate for a patient, to hold a hand, and to protect the disenfranchised. It takes courage to set the example of how to care for others. It is with this courageous approach that all of the residents and faculty at Carolinas Medical Center care for their patients daily.
During residency, every asset and aspect of our team and program is directed toward this mission. Through superior research, education, innovation, and clinical practice, we will support the development of physicians in emergency medicine who have the courage to care for their unique and diverse communities around the globe.
You are welcomed to join us on this mission.
