This 10 bed ED has a current average of 50 patients/day with a projected annual volume of 18,250 visits. Fellows will work an individually determined percentage of their clinical shifts in both EDís. Patientís are easily transported to the main Chapel Hill Medical Center ED or inpatient setting as a close relationship exists with the Hillsborough Community ED campus.
