Reflections on the Duke program

I was looking for rigorous training with smart, down-to-earth residents and faculty.

About Duke University and Durham

What's best about living in Durham and the Triangle?
It's easy to live in Durham; there's no traffic, lots of good restaurants, and it's an easy drive to the beach or mountains. 

What do you like to do outside of medicine?
I love outdoor activities. I'm learning to sail at Jordan Lake. It's also an easy drive to Asheville to hike.
