Reflections on the Duke program

What do you want to get involved in at Duke that particularly interests you (i.e. committees, research, interest groups, QI, etc.)?
I hope to get involved in clinical research, the Pediatric Residency Safety Council, and the Medical Education Leadership Track.

What are the strengths of the Duke program?
Duke is so unique in that it provides unparalleled clinical and research experiences in such a great area. The Triangle has so much to do, has awesome weather, and has such a great food scene. It's a great place to live! Every person you work with at the hospital is also so down to earth and dedicated to teaching. Duke really is a great place to do residency!
