From the Director

It’s the Chiefs last week!! New interns come to orientation in ONE WEEK. What a fantastic year. We are so proud of our graduating class – please don’t forget to come to the SAR appreciation lunch on Thursday! This is such an exciting and bittersweet time of the year – thank you once again to the Class of 2019 for the incredible contributions you made to the DukeFamily; you are legends!!

Overhead construction update: The current situation is that we need to vacate exam rooms by 4:30 daily. If your visit will not be done by then, please contact us/the nurses to figure out a plan to find another space to finish up your visit nearby.

Thanks everybody for your efforts with the rollout of the VA’s national MISSION Act. This will affect how we all enter outpatient consult requests. It’s really important that you speak with your LEAD resident, attendings, or one of us about this so you know what you need to do.

We’re eagerly anticipating our interns’ arrival for clinic orientation on June 27. If you happen upon us leading a merry band around the hospital, please say hi and reassure the newbies that all will be well!

PRIME Clinic is sad to see our SARs graduate, but we are very happy for each of you as you enter the next phase of your professional life! Thanks for all you have done for our veterans and for our clinic. We really appreciate each of you for the wonderful people that you are. It’s been our privilege to partner with you in your training.
