Reflections on the Duke program
What were you looking for in a residency program?
While I wanted to go to a program that was both rigorous and heavily academic/research bent, the most important thing for me was finding a program in which I felt comfortable and at home around my peers/co-workers.
What are the strengths of the Duke program?
Besides the breadth of clinical exposure, the diversity of being at a national referral center while also being a local hospital as well, and the incredible faculty, the real strength of this program is the people - both the faculty and my co-interns/residents. They are equal parts brilliant and humble, always supportive, and will always have your back in any situation!

It's an incredibly affordable, vibrant, and commutable city. Whenever anyone comes to visit, I always make sure to take them to the Sarah P. Duke Gardens.
