Duke provides seemingly limitless opportunities for both clinical and basic science research. The surgical experience here is unsurpassed by any other training program, and begins early on in training. Our clinical experience spans the spectrum of neurosurgical disease processes. We have one of the largest tumor centers in the United States, as well as innovators in the exponentially growing field of functional neurosurgery. Ultimately though, my decision to come to Duke for my residency training was largely based on the people here. I appreciated the faculty’s desire to teach the residents, and their collective compassion for the patients we treat. The residents here are close friends, and we truly work well together as a team. I have had such a rewarding experience here so far, and I look forward to the years to come. I love my job, and I love Duke.
