Reflecting the academic collaboration between the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill and Carolinas HealthCare System, the university has appointed the System’s chief academic officer, Mary Nolan Hall, MD, FAAFP, as the associate dean for the UNC School of Medicine regional campus in Charlotte.
A longtime North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) member, Dr. Hall joined Carolinas HealthCare System in 1987 as the Director of Medical Student programs in the Department of Family Medicine. She was Chair of Family Medicine for eight years and held a number of other positions, including director of medical student education, medical director of the Family Medicine Center and program director of the Family Medicine residency program. Dr. Hall received her undergraduate degree from the State University of New York in Binghamton and her Medical degree from Cornell University Medical College. She completed her residency in family medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in Charleston, SC and fellowships in faculty development at MUSC and at UNC-Chapel Hill.
For more than 40 years, Carolinas HealthCare System has provided clinical education in a variety of specialties to UNC School of Medicine students. In 2010, the institutions partnered to create a regional campus, UNC School of Medicine Charlotte Campus, on the grounds of Carolinas Medical Center. The Charlotte Campus each year hosts the equivalent of 50 full-time medical students who complete rotations across System facilities.
Congratulations, Dr. Hall!
