Gabrielle McNary, MD
Clinical and Research Interests
Prior to starting residency, in broad terms, optimizing surgical correction of female urological conditions by means of minimizing common post-operative conditions (i.e. pelvic organ prolapse recurrence, erosion of suture following sacral colpopexy). Undecided at this time.
What were you looking for in a residency program?
A high-volume program, residents that worked well together and demonstrated teamwork, attendings that enforced a learning environment with effective teaching and an appropriate level of autonomy reflecting residency year.
What are the strengths of the Duke program?
It is a busy program with a high case load.
What advice do you have for incoming interns?
Rest/relax/go on vacations now. Try to plan ahead for personal things as best as you can and develop a routine that works best for you to maintain a positive peace of mind.
What do you like best about living in Durham and the Triangle?
Small town with enough to do and relatively short drive to get to most places (less than 15 mins).
What do you like to do outside of Duke?
Exercise, church, breweries when I have time.
