Adult Neurology Residency 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 insure that every resident has ample opportunity to gain expertise in all aspects of neurology.

The Duke Neurology Residency Program recognizes that diversity is a necessary component of its 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.

In neurology, I found the humanistic side of medicine that I love being a part of and couldn’t see myself doing anything else. I am early in my second year and there is so much to learn. It really is a dream come true. - Abhi Kapuria, MD, Duke Neurology Resident, 2017-2020
