Friday, December 20, 2013

Mary Klotman, MD, chair of the department, Aimee Zaas, MD, MHS, program director of the Internal Medicine Residency Program, and David Simel, MD, vice chair for Veterans Affairs, have announced the Chief Residents for the 2015-16 academic year:

It is with great pride that we announce the 2015-16 Chief Residents for the Internal Medicine Residency Program. We are proud to partner with the Durham VA Medical Center and Duke Regional Hospital in selecting these outstanding individuals who join in an important and longstanding tradition.

The Chief Residents are chosen for their leadership skills and clinical acumen and are the most representative faces of the Internal Medicine Residency program for the year. The Chief Residency represents the largest investment in leadership made by the Department of Medicine, however the return on this investment is several-fold.

We look forward to our 2015-16 Chief Residents serving as teachers, role models, and colleagues to our residents:
