Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion is one of our most closely held values in the Duke Psychiatry Residency program. We celebrate the diversity of our residents, and we're committed to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all residents, no matter their age, gender, race, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation, religion or socioeconomic background. We are proud that more than a quarter of our residents attended international medical schools, and we encourage graduates from international medical schools who have had experience in the U.S. healthcare system and outstanding academic backgrounds to apply to our program.  
 
Durham is a very diverse city, and our residents provide care to an exceptionally diverse patient population across all of our clinical sites, acute care services, outpatient clinics and community psychiatry rotation sites. Our community psychiatry rotations include the Lincoln Community Mental Health Center, serving Durham’s Black community, and El Futuro, which serves Latinx families in a bilingual environment.
