UNC Medical School Yearbooks Now Available

The University of North Carolina School of Medicine yearbooks are now available on DigitalNC. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Medicine was established in 1879, but these are the only six yearbooks that have been produced. Called “The Tarhealer,” the yearbook was published from 1987-1992. More so than the traditional yearbook, these focus on snapshots captured in everyday life over posed portraits. Medical students are seen in daily life, taking classes, studying, in lab, relaxing — and performing sketches. On this page, UNC School of Medicine alumnus, Ken Jeong, is performing alongside fellow students. He is now known for his roles in Community, The Hangover, and Dr. Ken, a show based on his experiences as a doctor.
