General dermatology, hair disorders, ethnic skin, global health

Why did you choose Duke for residency training?

I was fascinated with all of the subspecialty clinics that Duke dermatology has to offer. I believe that Duke will leave me fully prepared. Additionally, Duke has a genuine interest in increasing diversity, a southern hospitality charm and collegial atmosphere that makes the environment easy to work in.
