About the Program

Our residency program provides excellent training in all areas of general and sub-specialty neurology.

In addition to being a tertiary care center where interesting cases are sent from around the state and country, Duke University Hospital serves as a community hospital for Durham and the surrounding region. The volume and diversity of the patients that come through our inpatient wards and outpatient clinics ensure that every resident has ample opportunity to gain expertise in all aspects of neurology.

The Duke Neurology Residency Program recognizes that equity, diversity, and inclusion are necessary components of our mission of world-class patient care, education, and research. Our program is committed to building and maintaining a diverse and inclusive community where all members thrive in a welcoming and engaging environment.

Our residency program recognizes that diversity comes in many forms. Our recent residents have MD, DO, and PhD degrees, attended medical school on four continents, and have served in the military. As of July 1, 2023, 26% our program will be comprised of residents who identify as a member of an underrepresented racial or ethnic group (national average is 9%) and 70% will be women (national average is 43%). Our residency thrives on this diversity.
