Dr. Hemming joined the faculty at Duke University in 2015.  He is a general internist, and practices primary care medicine at the Duke Outpatient Clinic in Durham.  He is a medical educator.  He teaches and supervises Internal Medicine residents in the primary care and inpatient setting.  He is a member of the Duke Kidney Transplant Center, where he evaluates potential live donors and acts as the Independent Living Donor Advocate, assisting patients and families with the difficult decision to donate.
