Start Year: 
2014

Why did you chose Duke for residency training?

I was most attracted to the diversity in the department - at the resident, faculty and leadership level. The residency culture really seemed to encourage a healthy work-life balance with golden weekends and residents who could build families. The residents seemed happy and fulfilled. Additionally, I wanted to take care of the diverse patient population - patients who are socioeconomically disadvantaged, are black or Latina, living in rural parts of the state - this was also something that really drew me to the area. I also had a strong interest in Gynecologic Oncology, and the division here is a hotbed for nationally respected research and internationally known faculty.
