The Department of Medicine has a sincere and long-standing commitment to the recruitment, retention, and development of a diverse group of faculty and trainees. We attract a wide range of residents from national and international schools of medicine.
When asked why they chose to come to Duke, residents say it's the sense of autonomy and camaraderie among the house staff that most attracted them to our program. In the third year of a national survey of physicians on the quality of postgraduate training programs, the Duke Internal Medicine Residency Program came in 6th overall.

She is interested in clinical cardiovascular research, particularly around atherosclerosis and prevention of cardiovascular events. On what she was looking for in a residency program: "I wanted to be pushed to become a great physician, but I also wanted to be encouraged to be myself and enjoy the process. Duke had the perfect mix of both. People here are so driven, but at the same time, very down-to-earth and balanced."
