Reasons I chose Duke:
- I left with a great impression of the program on my interview day. The faculty and fellows were so welcoming and approachable. I could see right away that they had great collegial relationships with each other.
- Duke is a world-class academic medical institution and provides an extensive breath of clinical experiences and research across the many subspecialties of endocrinology. I was especially excited that I could customize my fellowship experience based on my career goals (especially my interest in global health).
- I could tell that the faculty are interested and invested in the learning and development of each fellow. They provide a challenging yet comfortable learning environment.
- Everyone is genuinely happy about being here and wants to be at Duke. It speaks to the program’s environment that so many fellows stay at Duke after graduation, or at least remain involved in the program via case conferences and other opportunities.
- The program is large in terms of faculty but everyone I’ve work with has been so knowledgeable, interested in my learning, and approachable.
- Durham has many amazing outdoor spaces and trails for hiking or just a leisurely walk. Also, many places are dog friendly!
- The beach is so close it’s an easy day or weekend trip.
- The downtown area is vibrant and rich in food, art, and entertainment.
- The support staff are all wonderful and amazing! They really go the extra mile for our patients.
