Three former chief residents reflect on diversity in medicine

Friday, April 19, 2013

The Department of Medicine Minority Recruitment and Retention Committee is a sponsor of the upcoming event Faces of Change: The Legacy of African Americans at Duke University School of Medicine.

Recently, MRRC invited three former Duke chief residents to sit down for a conversation about diversity at Duke.

Kimberly Johnson, MD, assistant professor of medicine (Geriatrics); Kevin Thomas, MD, assistant professor of medicine (Cardiology); and Camille Frazier-Mills, MD, MHS, assistant professor of medicine (Cardiology), recounted why they choose to train at Duke and to join the faculty, and what they witnessed as Duke became more welcoming to African-American physicians.
