The fellowships are designed to provide the basis for an academic career, however, we certainly understand that many individuals have not yet made up their mind regarding career plans and use the fellowship to make a final determination regarding academics versus private practice. The individual should realize that our fellowships are structured to provide the basis for an academic career and, therefore, significant emphasis is placed upon research activities (both clinical and laboratory), publication, presentations, and teaching at both medical student and resident levels.
“I chose Duke for fellowship because it is a large referral center with diverse pathology, unparalleled technology, and first class faculty, yet it is set in a relaxed, livable, and vibrant city.”
-Christine M. Iseman, M.D.
