Why did you choose Duke for your residency training?

To me Duke embodies the balance of academic distinction with the spirit of collegiality. Striving to teach in an environment that promotes individuality within a teamwork framework is its trademark. Its reputation guarantees both a great clinical experience and boundless opportunities for fellowship training. Yet, not surprisingly, its people reflect its personality in their openness and willingness to accept all those who similarly strive for excellence in education and character.
