Training at Duke

The Department of Medicine has a sincere and long-standing commitment to the recruitment, retention, and development of a diverse group of faculty and trainees.

We attract a wide range of residents from national and international schools of medicine. When asked why they chose to come to Duke, residents say it's the sense of autonomy and camaraderie among the housestaff that most attracted them to our program. 

Our residents also value the rigor and depth of the clinical training and numerous opportunities to engage in research. Learn more about resident research.

Duke's environment facilitates the development of close friendships among the interns, residents, faculty, and staff, and stands as one of the key aspects of our program.
