From the Director

Team! Don’t forget to stop by or email Jessica and give her a big congratulations on her promotion to the DOM Project Coordinator role. While she won’t be with us in the Med Res Office, she remains part of the #Dukefam and the DOM Education team taking on bigger roles with educational projects throughout the department. We are so proud of you, Jessica! Jessica will be starting her new role on November 8th.

IT’s officially November! The month of RECRUITMENT, Thanks and cheesy moustaches. Your chiefs (well, Dennis and Burt) will be HYPING the Ted Lasso-esque 1970’s cheesier facial hair under their masks so please pay attention to the “Mo-vember” hype to increase awareness of prostate cancer and prostate cancer screening. Masks are the best thing to happen for the month. Facts.

It’s also flu shot season! Way better than flu season. If you have not gotten your flu shot, it is DUE by 11/8. Tia sent a list to those who aren’t in the VaxTrax system – many thanks to a whole bunch of you who got your records updated! If you have questions about your flu shot status being recorded, please check with Tia!

Kudos
Many kudos – to Michelle Ferriera for an awesome Cohen Conference, to Sith Sekar for his great SAR talk (live from ACG in Vegas!), to John Barber, Tyler Couch, Hayley Cunningham, Damarcus Ingram, Katherine Jordan, Felix Nwajei and Cameron Strong from Alex Cho for their amazing work in a stressful situation caring for a patient at the DOC, to Ann Cameron Barr, Ceshae Harding, Melanie Cabezas, Tyler Couch and Omar Martinez-Uribe for being our first (virtual) teachers at the City of Medicine Academy HS partnership, to Jen Dziwis from Grace Lee for teaching and inspiring a premed student volunteering in the ED, to Erin Frost for doing a great job on a busy MICU shift (also from Grace Lee), to Kristen Corey for being a total boss in the CICU (from Emory Buck), to Sam Collins for managing an RRT (from Felicia Cao), to Sachi Oshima from Sean Taasan for keeping the caffeine flowing, and to Hannah Florian from James Helzberg for great teamwork in the VA ICUs.

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/
