Reflections on the Duke program
What were you looking for in a residency program?
Sense of community and teamwork. You can be at the best program in the world but if you're not in a supportive environment where people work together, you won't be the best resident and doctor you can be. Medicine is a team sport!
What are the strengths of the Duke program?
Everyone is incredibly friendly From interpreters to nurses to residents and attendings...everyone works as a team! Before our intern year even started, our class was already getting together for drinks, kayaking, and hiking. It was then I realized I had made the right decision to come to Duke!
