“Duke is prestigious and cutting-edge, but what drew me to do my training here was the people. From the materials staff to the Chief Medical Officer of the hospital, everyone makes you feel like a somebody!”- Dr. Patricia Pittman Pathology Trainee
“I chose to train at Duke because one of the most important qualities in a residency program is the sense of family that is fosters. In addition to clinical and research excellence, Duke is full of phenomenal, compassionate people from all backgrounds, and residents (both in my program, and in various others) have become like family to me.”- Dr. Sarah Cotter Anesthesiology Trainee
