Correct. I simply pointed out that Wingate was not stopped from anything related to their Pharmacy School.

My point was a Wingate Pharma School in Asheville won’t succeed if CH is there.

And I didn’t think G-Boro was going to put one in A-ville as well. If so, that’s not right either.

With former Charlotte mayor Pat McCory soon to be governor will our chances to get a real medical school in this city improve? I remember years ago when Pat was mayor he promoted the idea of UNC Charlotte getting its own med school. Isn’t Charlotte one of the largest cities in the US without a med school? With an ageing population and the demand for healthcare services increasing doesn’t our city/state/country need more doctors? A med school would be huge for the university and the local economy. Obviously, the state of NC would have to help fund the med school and they are tightening the budget now but I think it is time the university, political leaders, and Charlotte residents make the push for a medial school.

Nice idea. Won’t happen for various reasons, not the least of which is, this state has many more really pressing problems that need to be addressed first. And Gov Pat knows it.

All Pat has to do is change the name of the UNCCH Hospital School in Charlotte to the UNCC Hospital School. It’s just dropping 1 letter out of 5 to make a 4 letter initials.

How much money does this even take? I mean, I feel like I could scrape together 10-15 cents…

At one time didn’t we have a few big names that were willing to bank roll a big chunk of this?

Not aware of any other people that backed us having a med school that were willing to provide funding, but maybe there were.

UNC sits on top of a lot of hospitals in NC. I’m a UNCC alum (2009) and at ECU for med school now and our opportunities to rotate through hospitals outside of ECU’s hospital are limited during our third year. Most hospitals in NC that are teaching hospitals have some statement like “available to UNC students only during 3rd year”. It’s a little frustrating that they have so much pull over the major hospital systems in Asheville, Charlotte Wilmington.

Thats fine though, I’m happy being the “UNCC kid” outperforming all the UNC alumni in class ::slight_smile:

UNC is a monopoly. The lack of a REAL medical school in this city not only hurts UNC Charlotte but the entire region around the city, medically and financially.

I think UNCC will eventually get a med school. I think it’ll take some time and a push from alumni in high places to get it done though.

Which hospital location does the above sign sit?

And speaking of sitting, this quote from the CMC website does not sit well with me.
