Distinguished Faculty

Endowed professorships are Duke University's most prestigious faculty appointments. Because they recognize both exceptional achievement and the potential for future achievement, they are awarded to our most distinguished physician-scientists and clinicians, as well as to junior faculty members who have demonstrated extraordinary scholarship in advancing medical science and human health.
