Tell a story of humility at our next Voices of Medicine show

Friday, January 26, 2018

The Department of Medicine will present another staging of Voices of Medicine, a live show featuring true stories from our faculty, trainees, and staff, on February 28, 2018.

The theme of this show is humility.

UPDATE: Many thanks to our six storytellers:

  • Govind Krishnan
  • TuanDat Nguyen
  • Elena Roberts
  • Joel Burt-Miller
  • Luke Gatta
  • David Zaas

Voices of Medicine is a collaboration between the Department of Medicine and The Monti, a local storytelling organization. We gather together to hear true stories from health care professionals sharing the experiences that inspired them to a life in medicine, or the interactions that give meaning to their careers in science and health.

Listen to a montage of voices from our previous show below (or here).



Be a storyteller

Got a good story that relates to the theme Humility?

Duke faculty, trainees, students, and staff (medicine, nursing, and others) are invited to make a story pitch. We’ll select five storytellers, and Jeff Polish, executive director of the Monti, will help you hone your story to an 8-minute gem that you will tell on stage in front of a live audience.

To volunteer to tell a story, register here.
