Scott Campbell, MD
Clinical and Research Interests
What were you looking for in a residency program?
Clinically, I was looking for a program that fostered surgeons that were skilled in open, robotic, and endourologic operations. In addition, I wanted to find a program that had enthusiastic faculty and resources to support a broad range of research interests. From an intangible perspective I wanted to find a program that had a down-to-earth, hardworking, and supportive group of residents that would make the journey through residency more fulfilling and enjoyable.
What are the strengths of the Duke program?
In my opinion, it is the diversity of training settings Duke Urology offers. The majority of our rotations are at the main campus, which involves highly specialized care of complex patients. We also rotate at multiple VA medical centers (Durham, Asheville) and a regional hospital. We have the opportunity to learn from attendings that have worked in nearly every practice setting without sacrificing the experience of training at a large tertiary care center.
What advice do you have for incoming interns?
Succeeding during intern year is all about attitude. It takes a lot of hard work, humility, and willingness to put patient care above all else.
What do you like best about living in Durham and the Triangle?
I live in downtown Durham and can walk nearly everywhere in the downtown and am only an 8-minute drive from the hospital. I am also only a short drive from some amazing hikes and other outdoor activities. Chapel Hill and Raleigh are nearby and provide a whole new set of restaurants and places to explore.
What do you like to do outside of Duke?
Spending time outdoors hiking, running, and fishing. I also like trying out all the fantastic restaurants in the Triangle.
