Reflections on the Duke program

What were you looking for in a residency program?
Perhaps more important than anything else, I was hoping to find a program where I felt challenged and pushed to become a well-rounded physician, thinker, and person. I believe I found that perfect balance here at Duke.

What are the strengths of the Duke program?
The people! Its only been a few short months, but I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my colleagues and how impressive and supportive they are. #DukeFamily

‚ÄčAbout Duke University and Durham

What's best about living in Durham and the Triangle?
Affordability--we were able to find a home we absolutely love at a price point we could afford. Downtown Durham is full of great restaurants and fun things to do. My husband and I have also enjoyed going to the Duke athletic events.

Where did you choose to live, and why?
We found a home in Northern Durham. It's probably a little farther from the hospital than a lot of the other residents live, but we felt it was worth it.

What do you like to do outside of medicine?
Sporting events, trying new restaurants, playing tennis, golfing
