Duke Health: There is No Place Like Home

Though it is the youngest of the nation's leading medical enterprises, Duke Health has grown into one of the country's largest clinical and biomedical research institutions. Duke Health encompasses a health system that spans 32 counties in North Carolina and includes areas in neighboring states. Duke University Hospital recently celebrated its 90th anniversary.

Shakira Harding, MD, MS, Obstetrics and Gynecology "Duke is a place where the journey rather than the destination is emphasized; asking questions is expected AND encouraged; and everyone actually cares about wellness. The call schedule is second to none and every single person of a team is committed to maintaining a positive culture." - Shakira Harding, MD, MS, Obstetrics and Gynecology


Join the Movement: Commitment to Social Justice and Dismantling Racism

Duke Health is taking specific actions to combat the social pandemics of systemic racism and injustice that plague our country. The health system, School of Medicine, and School of Nursing have begun the important work of learning from and reconciling moments of inequity across Duke Health and are now audaciously driving a movement for real change that makes our organization and community stronger, healthier and more just. Through this endeavor -- Moments to Movement -- we are beginning the critical work of learning from our history, understanding our present and planning for a bolder, more diverse and inclusive future.

Additionally, initiatives across Duke Health and with partners are aimed at combating racism and decreasing health disparities for historically marginalized populations, including work within the Duke Clinical & Translational Science Institute, the Duke Center for Research to Advance Health Equity, and LATIN-19 (Latinx Advocacy Team & Interdisciplinary Network for COVID-19), recently founded by two School faculty members.

It does so without compromising camaraderie and a nurturing learning environment. The leadership is also committed to making the residency experience an educational one." - Allison Taylor, MD, MS, Internal Medicine
