Reflections on the Duke program
What were you looking for in a fellowship program?
I was looking for a well rounded academic program in all three areas of Hematology, Oncology, and BMT. I have particular interests in bone marrow transplant and sarcomas, so I was looking for programs with strengths in those areas. Additionally, I was looking for a place that could offer me a number of basic science research opportunities and mentors to help develop my academic career.
About Duke University and Durham
What’s the best about living in Durham and the Triangle?
So far I love the weather and having the mountains and ocean nearby. There are a number of good golf courses, too. I look forward to exploring the city more and finding a number of good eateries and breweries.
What do you like to do outside of work?
Hike, bike, golf, kayak, cook/grill, cook proteins using my smoker, trying new restaurants.
