Reflections on the Duke Program
What were you looking for in a residency program?
I was looking for excellent clinical training, supportive co-residents, strong mentorship and opportunities for research.
What are the strengths of the Duke program?
Duke's strengths really do come from its people. When you start residency, you become a member of the Duke Family. Everyone has your back -- which is especially important as a day 1 intern!
About Duke University and Durham
What's best about living in Durham and the Triangle?
I take advantage of all the great hiking nearby (as does my dog). I live downtown and love checking out new restaurants. It's the perfect size city -- big enough that there is always something to do, small enough to be easy to navigate & relatively affordable.
Where did you choose to live, and why?
I rent a house near downtown. We live on a residential street and have a backyard for the dog, but are still 2 blocks from 2 different breweries. For us, it's the best of both worlds.
