Endowed professorships are Duke Medicine's most prestigious faculty appointments. Because they recognize both exceptional achievement and the potential for future achievement, they are awarded to our most distinguished physician-scientists and clinicians, as well as to junior faculty members who have demonstrated extraordinary scholarship in advancing medical science and human health.
