Stephanie Smeltzer, MD

Start Year: 

Why did you choose Duke for your residency training?

When I first interviewed at Duke, I could see firsthand the camaraderie and teamwork of the OB/GYN physicians, and I knew this would be a great place to train. The faculty seemed not only very accomplished in their fields, but willing to impart their knowledge and teaching to the next generation of physicians. I could tell that at Duke I would get first rate training and build strong mentors that I could have for the rest of my life.

What are your career interestes?

I am currently very interested in academic REI, and I hope to gain an REI academic position once graduating from fellowship.

What are your hobbies?

I enjoy golfing and spending time with my husband and one year old son.
