Sarah Blanchard, MD

First Year Resident
Start Year
2018

What are your career interests?

Currently I am interested in pediatric dermatology, immunodermatology and telemedicine.

Why did you choose Duke for residency training?

Duke has been my home for the last 4 years. The diversity at Duke brings together physicians and scientists from many different backgrounds to work together and become leaders in their fields. As residents, we get to see bread-and-butter dermatology as well as more rare diseases, and there are abundant opportunities to foster both clinical and research interests. Whatever path I chose to pursue after residency, I know that I will be well-prepared.
