What Our Trainees Say

"Duke has so much to offer and can support most any interest that you have. Even more importantly, the faculty provide great support. It is clear when working with Duke Psychiatry faculty members that my education and training as a psychiatrist is a top priority. The biggest strength of the program, though, are my co-residents. We help each other with workload, changing schedules, and more personal stuff like babysitting. I have been very impressed with my co-residents and am pleased about how close we have become."
