"I looked for a program that could help me develop into a leader for the future of family medicine. Duke's commitment to innovations in the profession and focus on population health tied in perfectly with their supportive faculty and academic resources. They have encouraged me to grow into the kind of family doctor that I have always dreamed to be - an advocate for my patients, a leader in my community, and an active voice for the profession. I couldn't be happier with my choice"

Aaron George, DO

"Duke Family Medicine provides an exciting and stimulating learning environment for family physicians who envision a new paradigm for health care delivery. In addition to training skilled clinicians, a supportive faculty and administration allows residents to explore the meanings of community-oriented primary care and to become part of a movement seeking to address health disparities and barriers to quality care.
