Duke Radiology values diversity.

Each year, we are committed to welcoming a highly accomplished group of new residents, who can further enrich our community with their unique perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences. We work hard to ensure that all members of our department feel safe, welcome, and respected. Please explore our initiatives to enhance diversity and promote inclusion.

Committee on Diversity, Inclusion, and Awareness

Vision Statement

The Department of Radiology embraces and welcomes a diverse community of faculty, fellows, residents, staff, and patients. Diversity and Inclusion are important to us. With this in mind, a Committee on Diversity, Inclusion, and Awareness was formed from faculty and trainees to broaden and enhance cultural competence and to encourage and develop interpersonal relationships.

Women in Radiology

The Duke Women in Radiology group welcomes all women in the Duke Department of Radiology. Mentorship is an essential component of career growth. A core mission of the Women in Radiology Group is to foster connections among female faculty members, residents, and medical students. The group is extremely active and hosts several events throughout the year, including a holiday social, medical student mixer, and career planning question and answer panel. We are an adventurous and fun-loving group, and activities at past events have included formal dinners, axe throwing, karaoke, and a white elephant gift exchange.
