Andrew Hollins, MD
Clinical and Research Interests
I am interested in both hand and microsurgery. I am interested in resident education and would like to someday become a residency program director.
What were you looking for in a residency program?
I wanted a residency program that gave me exposure to the full breadth of plastic surgery. I wanted a program that was invested in its residents education and had the tools to be successful in all areas of plastic surgery.
What are the strengths of the Duke program?
Duke is a place that provides great clinical exposure along with strong academic support. You get the full exposure of plastic surgery with a great volume of microsurgery without any fellows. The culture of Duke's residency program is similar to an extension of your family. We support one another and I truly enjoy going to work with my co-residents.
What advice do you have for incoming interns?
Enjoy every experience and try to learn something from every patient. You have the tools to succeed, just trust the process.
What do you like best about living in Durham and the Triangle?
Durham is a great place to live with great blend of food, events and outdoors. It is a great place for people of all backgrounds and has been awesome to for my wife and raising our beautiful daughter Murphy!
What do you like to do outside of Duke?
I enjoy watching Jared Blau's Instagram feed. We also enjoy walking through the Duke Forest, going on hikes with Cooper, our Bernese mountain dog. Eating at all the great places in Durham and going to Durham Bulls and Duke basketball games.
