Why Us?

We are a community of engaged faculty, staff members and students who work with communities and across disciplines — in North Carolina and around the world — to solve some of our most challenging health problems. Students experience levels of support typically available only at a small school but enjoy all the advantages of a large, world-class university. At the UNC Gillings School, we know we can make a world of difference, and we strive everyday to do just that. Interested in a degree or program? Fill out a Prospective Student Inquiry Form.
