Duke is a special place for many reasons, but namely the excellent clinical training, incredible research opportunities, and longitudinal mentorship provided to each resident.  But what really makes Duke stand apart in my mind are the people. My co-residents are without a doubt the most incredible people to work with, as they are motivated, inspiring and brilliant clinicians, yet humble beyond belief.  I love going to work every day because of them.  We are friends, we are a family, and Duke is home.
