From the Director

Happy week after Thanksgiving! We are charging ahead into December – looking forward to our Zoom holiday event on Dec. 12! You think we would let the chiefs get away with no performance just because we are gathering virtually? NO WAY! Actually, your amazing chiefs are way excited to entertain. Because there is literally NOTHING that they aren’t great at. (My English teachers are cringing at everything wrong with that sentence…but yes the chiefs are awesome).

A HUGE THANKSGIVING THANKS TO DR. COONEY and the DOM for Thanksgiving lunch for our residents and fellows!

Many thanks to all for your continued efforts at staying COVID-safe. Nothing easy about any of this for us or for our patients and community. Your efforts are truly appreciated and make a difference each time we all make a safer choice in what we do. Please keep us informed if you are in need of cleaning supplies, safer work spaces, or new “forever face shields”!

Kudos
Kudos this week to all who are helping out with recruitment: Zoom meet-up with Harsh Patolia, JT Tanaka, Kurren Mehta, Amber Meservey, Seabass Franco, Ryan Slauer, Sonali Bracken, Chris Asuzu, Lena Eder, as well as the “Significant Others” meet up with Ryan and Rachel Slauer, Callie Berkowitz and Daniel Sater and Ryan and Emily Duffy as well as our MRRC team for the November MRRC meet up. Also to our My Takers of Alex Grubb, Harsh Patolia and Mike Cosiano!

Other kudos to Alex Grubb for an awesome SAR talk, to Chris Asuzu from Jan Dillard for patient centered care at the DOC, to Sam Rauch from GEN MED (sent by Bhavik Patel) for coming in early on NF to get the teams out on Thanksgiving, to Geargin Wilson from Omar Martinez Uribe for his fearless VA leadership as well as to Hayley Cunningham for awesome team support, to Emory Buck and Daniel Bernstein from Amanda Broderick for great 9300 teamwork, and right back to Amanda from Emory and Daniel, to David Bader from Dr. Zipkin for impromptu vaccine teaching at the DOC, to Dr. Joel Boggan for his presentation to Aga Khan University on Quality Improvement and Patient Safety, and to all who made Turkey Roll safe and fun!

Duke SCI-StARR Pathway
The Duke SCI-StARR pathway (Science Clinician Investigator - Stimulating Access to Research in Residency) supports protected time funded by an R38 award for research for residents in the Departments of Medicine who are committed to a career as a physician investigator in academic medicine. All Residents in the R38 SCI-StARR program will have a primary research mentor in either laboratory-based basic science research or clinical research.  In addition, a Scholarship Oversight Committee (SOC) will meet with each resident in the program at least twice per year and help the trainee create an individualized development plan. Application Deadline:  Nov. 30, 2020.

Duke Primary Care Transformation Fellowship
The Duke Department of Family Medicine and Community Health is accepting applications to fill the third cohort of its two-year Primary Care Transformation Fellowship. The goal of the fellowship is to train physicians and physician assistants to lead health care transformation and improve health within their communities and community-based practice settings. Applications are due Jan. 31, 2021. Learn more.

PAS services are available free of charge to Duke faculty and staff, and their immediate family members.
