A Tradition of Excellence

Every alumnus of the Duke Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Residency came to Duke with a purpose: not to be just average, not to be good, but to be great. But in terms of the training program, what does it mean to be great?

Once again, our prior leaders laid the groundwork. It starts with having a teaching and learning environment based on trust, teamwork, and tradition. It involves creating an atmosphere of family and friendship. It requires a commitment to lifelong learning and giving back to our communities and to the specialty. It involves the fostering of ingenuity and passion. Finally, it involves tireless effort, enthusiasm, and inspiration by the faculty and leadership.

A great Plastic Surgery Division and training program is one that embraces and advances the specialty across its breadth. Our predecessors led Duke to become a beacon for reconstructive surgery. The importance of this identity will not be lost on us as we work to create the most well-rounded academic plastic surgery program in the country. In doing so, we strive to be the best at every level: in the clinic, in academics, and in research.
