Education and training

Division faculty play key roles throughout Duke University School of Medicine. We teach:

  • Medical students, through pre-clinical and clinical education programs, such as the Primary Care Leadership Track
  • Nurse practitioners and physician assistants through collaborations with the Duke Schools of Nursing and Medicine
  • Internal medicine residents, through in-patient hospital medicine and out-patient ambulatory care 
  • Post-Doctoral Fellowship program, offered by the Durham Center for Health Services Research in Primary Care within the Durham VA Medical Center in collaboration with Duke General Internal Medicine
  • The Clinical Research Training Program, presented by the Duke University School of Medicine in collaboration with the Training Program in Clinical Research at the National Institutes of Health. This program offers a Master of Health Sciences in Clinical Research given by Duke University School of Medicine.
  • A weekly Fellow/Faculty Development Conference Series - Works In Progress (WIP), an educational conference delivered by our faculty experts. Fellows and assistant professors meet to discuss preliminary research findings, grant ideas, review abstracts before submission; or receive feedback on presentation skills.
  • Continuing Medical Education, with credits for Duke physicians who attend educational conferences in Duke Primary Care and the Department of Medicine Grand Rounds. See our Events Calendar.
  • Other conference offerings: Division faculty give lectures, panel discussions and other presentations through the Duke Center for Palliative Care, Duke Center for Health Informatics, and the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI). See our Events Calendar.
