Betty Jiang, MD
What are your career interests?
I am interested in pigmentary disorders, especially dyspigmentation in ethnic skin, with special focus in the intermediate Fitzpatrick skin types (such as individuals of Asian, Southeast Asian, and Latino ethnic backgrounds). I am also interested in the medical and surgical care of adult dermatology patients, including detection and treatment of skin cancers.
Why did you choose Duke for residency training?
I was lucky to have been a medical student at Duke, and got to know the department well. What I can truly say is that the dermatology residents here are happy and feel supported. We have great attendings and co-residents, but you’ll also find that our nurses, researchers, and administrative staff are helpful, friendly, and cheerful people. I feel that people enjoy being here, and this translates to great patient care. Of course, we see a lot of rare diseases at Duke. You will also get comprehensive training in the bread-and-butter of dermatology, in procedures, and in dermatopathology. At the end of training, you will be able to take your career in any direction you wish.
P.S. To the applicants out there, if you’ve never been to Durham or the Triangle area, it’s a great place to live with lots of things to do. Come visit and see for yourself!
