Education and Training

Physician clinical and research training at the medical student and resident levels is an essential component of the mission of the Division of Medicine-Pediatrics.

Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program

Duke Medicine-Pediatrics is strongly committed to educating and training the next generation of Medicine-Pediatrics physicians, and all current section faculty members teach and mentor both residents and medical students. The Duke Medicine-Pediatrics Residency is a shared training program between the Departments of Medicine and Pediatrics. The program recruits six combined Medicine-Pediatrics residents per year and offers diverse training in both adult and pediatric medicine with substantial experiences in primary care, hospital medicine, and subspecialty medicine. Primary inpatient training sites include Duke University Hospital, the Durham Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center, and Duke Regional Hospital.  Outpatient care is provided at the combined Medicine-Pediatrics faculty-resident primary care clinic. Duke Medicine-Pediatrics graduates enter careers in specialty fields (50%), primary care, hospital medicine and global health.

Current Residents

Our Medicine-Pediatrics residents come to Duke and from all over the country to explore exciting career paths in hospital-based or community practices, ranging from general medicine-pediatrics to a wide variety of specialty opportunities.
