Joel “Jock” Moore was born and raised in Washington, North Carolina. He couldn’t resist the call to join the Tar Heels as he attended the University of North Carolina for college and medical school. Jock was a 3-sport athlete in high school and walked on as a Fullback for the UNC football team. He couples-matched at Maryland for residency with his girlfriend Elena, a family medicine resident. Jock plans to go into primary care and possibly complete a Sports Medicine fellowship after residency. Outside of the hospital, Jock continues to be a multi-sport athlete including kickball, dodgeball, shooting clays/ hunting and of course playing with his dog Zora.
