From the Director

Is it really basically September? Time has a weird way of going both slow and fast right now. From all of us in the program leadership, a huge kudos to all of our residents, interns, students and staff for really incredible work during the most unusual start to an academic year. We truly appreciate your work, your engagement, your support of your patients and your support of each other as we settle into the year with less opportunity to be together in person, both at work and outside of work. 

Today is the Intern Noon Conversation with Dr. Cooney, and we have a program Town Hall Conversation on Thursday. While you’re at it, wish Matt Labs a HAPPY BIRTHDAY today!

Congratulations to our intern ResCo reps:

  • Emory Buck
  • Annie Cavalier (P)
  • Priyanka Patel
  • Anand Shah
  • Omar Martinez-Uribe

Fellowship interviews are getting booked at a rapid pace – congrats to all of you! If you want to do your interview while at work, please see the Google sign up sheet that Hannah sent out to reserve space in one of our “interview-offices."

From the Residency Office

Narrative Medicine
The Duke Narrative Medicine group will be having its first meeting of the year in-person on Sept. 1 at 7 p.m. in the Med Res! Narrative Medicine is a low-key, fun group where we usually eat dinner together and take the opportunity to share and discuss pieces that we've written. It's not a place for academic writing or publication or intense critiques, but it IS a great opportunity to get to know some of your colleagues outside of work on a more personal level. You're more than welcome to come hang out and talk with us even if you haven't written anything lately. 
There's usually a loose theme for each session, but not all the pieces have to be about that topic.

This session's theme will be "Overcoming Barriers." The theme was inspired by the "Forgotten Voices: Confronting Duke Hospital's Racial Past" Medicine Grand Rounds on 8/14, so if you have any written reflections from that session, we would love to discuss them! However, we would be equally thrilled to hear about your experience overcoming the barriers of PPE to bond with patients or overcoming the barrier of crushing fatigue at the end of 28-hour call. Sean Taasan, Austin Wesevich, and Tim Hopper will be there to facilitate the discussion along with our esteemed faculty mentor, Dr. G!  In the interest of social distancing, this event will be limited to 10 people, so email Tim if you're planning to come. 

Stead Research Grants - call for applications
We are accepting applications for the 2020 Stead Resident Research Grants. The applications are due on Sept. 2, 2020 for a funding start date to be determined in October 2020. Application instructions, forms, and sample NIH biosketch are in an email from Dr. Arcasoy. Please include your mentor’s NIH Biosketch in a single file with the grant. Your mentor's support letter can be emailed separately. We have research funding application opportunities twice in each academic year: in the fall (Stead grants) and spring (Faculty Resident Research Grants). The next funding opportunity will be in April 2021 (Faculty Resident Research Grants).

Feeling down? Need to talk to someone? Opportunities for Wellness
All trainees at Duke have FREE access to Personal Assistance Services (PAS), which is the faculty/employee assistance program of Duke University. The staff of licensed professionals offer confidential assessment, short-term counseling, and referrals to help resolve a range of personal, work, and family problems. PAS services are available free of charge to Duke faculty and staff, and their immediate family members. An appointment to meet with a PAS counselor may be arranged by calling the PAS office at 919-416-1PAS (919-416-1727), Monday through Friday between 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. For assistance after hours, residents and fellows can call the Blood and Body Fluid Hotline (115 inside DUH, 919-684-1115 outside) for referral to behavioral health resources. Another resource is Duke Outpatient Psychiatry Referrals at (919) 684-0100 or 1-888-ASK-DUKE. https://www.hr.duke.edu/pas/
