We are saddened by the recent news from Tulane University. Read our message on these events and our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Thank you for your interest in the Duke combined Medicine-Pediatrics residency training program! The Duke Med-Peds residency program was started in 1986 and has maintained a strong presence at Duke since that time. The Duke Med-Peds program offers diverse training in both adult and pediatric medicine with substantial experiences in primary care and subspecialty medicine.
The people are the key component to our continued success. Our trainees arrive with diverse perspectives and experiences and are hard-working, enthusiastic, dedicated and outgoing. Our residents excel in clinical care, education, quality improvement and leadership and are widely recognized at the institution for these efforts. Our program is well-integrated into both departments and with both categorical residency programs in Medicine and Pediatrics. The Med-Peds program leadership collaborates closely with our colleagues to ensure outstanding educational experiences for our trainees.
We have dedicated combined med-peds trained faculty who work in our primary care section, in hospital medicine and in the subspecialty divisions. They have a variety of interests in outpatient and inpatient clinical care, education, research, quality improvement and global health, and remain involved in our med-peds community.
At Duke, trainees have the opportunity to work closely with a large group of faculty in clinical medicine. There are a host of research, quality improvement, patient safety and advocacy opportunities available to trainees across the Health System and University.
We have seen a tremendous amount of change in our lives over the last several months with the COVID pandemic and global movement to address racial and social inequities. The Duke Med-Peds program is committed to support the safety and well-being of our residents, to build our awareness of systemic biases and mistreatment, and to learn how to create a more inclusive environment so that we can better care for each other and our patients. Furthermore, we will partner with Duke, including the Departments of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, in the commitment toward transformative actions toward eliminating the systems of racism and inequality.
We invite you to read more about our program and encourage you to contact us with questions!
