From the Director

We are getting closer to the start of intern recruitment and can’t wait for you all to participate! Be on the lookout for emails from Kayla about signing up for dinners, tours, and “My Take” talks, as well as information about lunches during recruitment and how to know if people from your med school are coming to look at (the best residency program in the country) Duke IM!

This week, Drs. Hargett, Boggan and I are visiting Stanford IM Residency to learn about their program and bring back ideas for ours. We are excited to learn about things they do out here and look forward to continuous improvement in our program. Prior to that, I got in a quick visit to Dave’s hometown of Cleveland and was able to connect with a few of our Duke expatriates (see above) who are all doing well!

As we continue with Doctoberfest, we have “We Care” week – during this week, we forgo our resident lunches and donate to a charity chosen by YOU! Stay tuned for information on voting for this year’s winner. Also, please take time to sign up for the STEAD TREAD! It’s a great event for a great cause. Run, walk, rance (look it up on YouTube) but BE THERE!

Vinay Choksi and Neha KayasthaCONGRATULATIONS TO NEHA KAYASTHA AND VINAY CHOKSI on their engagement!!!!

Kudos
This week’s kudos go to Josh Parsons for an outstanding chair’s conference, to Sean Chen from Michael Noujaim for his outstanding work on night float, to Jesse Gu for teamwork and a timely assist on an admission from Bryan Golubski, and to anesthesia resident Nate Erksine from Dr. Peter Kussin for compassionate care of a very ill patient.

PubMed from the Program
This week’s pubmed from the program goes to Austin Wesevich for his poster at ID Week poster (with former Duke residents Josh Thaden and Vance Fowler) that got a write up in the Infectious Diseases Advisor! Wesevich A, Sutton G, Fouts D, Fowler VG, Thaden J. Newly-named Klebsiella aerogenes is associated with poor clinical outcomes relative to Enterobacter cloacae complex in patients with bloodstream infection. Presented at: IDWeek 2019; October 2-6, 2019; Washington, DC, MD. Poster 221.

Have a great week!
