Career and Research Goals

I hope to become a structural interventionalist. I would be interested in future roles focused on trainee education and mentoring. I have future plans of returning to my homeland of Ghana in some capacity to impact cardiovascular care. My current research interest are healthcare disparities in structural heart disease.

Fellow Perspective

What are the strengths of the Duke program?
I really enjoy the Duke fellowship program. I believe there is a lot of flexibility and ability for individualization past the early clinical years. The program values each and every fellow and does everything they can to help trainees achieve their career goals. There are also a variety of faculty and tons of great mentors that help trainees along their path to being fantastic Cardiologists.
