Reflections on the Duke program

I wanted to go somewhere that felt academically rigorous, but also collaborative. Duke seemed like a place that valued medical education but also emphasized friendships and camaraderie. I felt very at home during my interview day and that "these were my people."

About Duke University and Durham

What's best about living in Durham and the Triangle?
I live in Chapel Hill, but right on the border of Durham. I love all of the great restaurants in Durham and on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill. There are many outdoorsy things to do as well!

What do you like to do outside of medicine?
I love spending time with friends, cooking, and trying out new restaurants/bars! I am an animal lover and have a Lab and an American bulldog! Spending time outside is always a favorite.
