From the Director

The last Med Res News of the 2019-20 year! And what a year it has been. No better group to go through a pandemic with, that is for sure. Congratulations and a million thanks to our outgoing Duke IM Chief Residents: Amanda Boyd, Lara Hayes, Jared Lowe and Caroline Sloan. You all set a VERY high bar!

We are so excited to welcome the 2020-21 Duke IM Chief Residents Hannah Dzimitrowicz, Stephanie Garbarino, Govind Krishnan and Matt Labriola! It is going to be an AMAZING year! New interns start orientation on Wednesday….we can’t wait! Check your email to sign up for Zoom chats with them and be ready for them to join us on the wards and in the  clinics!

Kudos
Kudos this week go to Nadia Yimer for an awesome (last) Chair’s Conference of the year, to Alie Mara for a fantastic (last) SAR talk of the year, to Micah Schub from Dr. Sunil Rao for superior work on the VA Cards Consult team, to Jen Dziwis for her hard work at the VA from Leigh Wynkoop and team, and to Shon Arnold from Dr. Alex Cho for astute care that really expedited a serious diagnosis for a patient.
