Jill Hagey, MD, MPH

Start Year: 

Why did you choose Duke for your residency training?

I wanted to be at a strong academic program that graduated residents who felt comfortable pursuing both generalist careers and fellowship training after completing the residency, while also being at an institution that emphasized collaboration in learning to be an excellent women’s health physician. Additionally, after years on the West Coast and in the Northeast, I wanted to explore a new area of the country to understand challenges that women experience in their health care. Duke provides all of these aspects, and I’m thrilled to be here for my training.

What excites you about the residency/fellowship program at Duke OB/GYN?

The Duke OB/GYN department places a strong emphasis on resident training, and the teaching and mentorship through the department is fantastic. Additionally, the residents and faculty alike are strong advocates for their patients’ health, and provide evidence-based care to their patients.

What are your career goals?

I hope to stay within academic medicine to provide women’s health care through the triad of clinical care, education, and research; hopefully with a global health lens. I’m likely going to pursue a fellowship in gynecologic surgery of some kind – still TBD!

What are your hobbies?

I love anything active. Hiking, biking and yoga are among my favorite ways to stay active these days. I really enjoy trying new restaurants, and there are a lot of fun new places in Durham to explore! I have a sweet tooth as well, so the rest of my time off is spent baking in my kitchen or trying to find new recipes to try.
