Welcome new chief residents!

Monday, July 18, 2016

Did you know this? In recognition of the important contributions to teaching, research and patient care, our Medicine Chief Residents receive academic appointments as “Medical Instructors” in the Division of General Internal Medicine. In fact, many former Chiefs fill our leadership ranks at Duke. [Tip: Dr. Oddone was a Duke Chief. We are #ProudtobeGIM]
