Barbara Sheline, MD, MPH

Dr. Sheline cares for patients of all ages in the Family Medicine Center. She has been teaching and seeing patients at Duke since 1990. She and her husband found Durham to be a wonderful place to raise two children. They moved here from New Mexico where Dr. Sheline completed Family Medicine residency and a fellowship in Social Medicine. She has a Masters in Public Health from UNC and is particularly interested in community medicine. She is very excited about the community orientation of the residency program and feels it will be excellent training to make residents state of the art clinicians for the future of Family Medicine. It complements well with the new Primary Care Leadership Track she directs at the School of Medicine.

"I cannot tell you how excited I am to be at this one-of-a-kind family medicine program! This program attracts passionate people who seek to be leaders in family medicine. It is not your typical program by any stretch. The outpatient focus, commitment to community research, and the programís willingness to help you create a tailored residency experience are things that no other program offers. Having the resources available at Duke, and opportunity to work with renowned physicians is second to none. As an intern there is much to learn, but the other residents, faculty, and staff are all here to support you and guide you along the way. Durham is an exciting city with so much to do, and I couldn't have asked for a better group of co-interns and residents to spend my 3 years with. If you are looking for a different program that emphasizes outpatient care and are passionate about changing the dynamic of family medicine, this is the program for you."
