What are the strengths of the Duke Geriatrics Fellowship Program? 
The faculty! Everyone you work with is both friendly and a brilliant teacher. The core curriculum is structured to ensure a firm grounding for becoming a well rounded geriatrician, but there is also flexibility and support from all sides to develop your particular interests, whether they are clinical or in research.

Career and Research Goals 

My goals have been evolving with all the fantastic experiences I've had already in fellowship! I hope to have a clinical practice in both inpatient and outpatient settings. My main focus so far is learning about different models of care and their development. I am particularly interested in models that deliver care to seniors in their own homes, such as the COACH program.
