Resident Spotlight: Antanina Voit, MD
Dr. Voit is a second-year resident in Vascular Surgery. On the relationship between residents Dr. Voit says, "The relationship between Duke Vascular trainees is extremely close. Currently, we have two residents in the program, and we're recruiting for a candidate this fall. I find that all the trainees, whether the fellows in vascular surgery or the integrated residents, are extremely close. We enjoy hanging out outside of work, and we enjoy being in the OR and learning from each other and taking care of patients every day."
Resident Spotlight: Hope Weissler, MD
Dr. Weissler is a fourth-year resident in Vascular Surgery. On Dr. Weissler's career plans, "I'm interested in being an academic vascular surgeon. The reason why Duke is such a good fit for me is that I know that I'll graduate from here being able to do academics at a really high level with rigorous methodology in a way that makes a difference for my patients and being able to operate in a way that is safe and effective and in the best interest of my patients as well."
Faculty Spotlight: Chandler A. Long, MD
Dr. Long is an Assistant Professor of Surgery in the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery and Associate Director of the Vascular Surgery Residency and Fellowship Programs. On what Dr. Long enjoys most about Duke, "Duke is known for being a high-powered academic institution, but it's a very intimate setting. It's in a small city, and you get to know your colleagues well. You get to know their families, and you get to interact and collaborate with brilliant people that in larger cities or institutions, you may not necessarily cross paths with."
Faculty Spotlight: Ellen D. Dillavou, MD
Dr. Dillavou is an Associate Professor of Surgery in the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery and Chief of Vascular Surgery at Duke Regional Hospital. On the ideal candidate Dr. Dillavou says, "I think the kind of person who does well at Duke has a thirst for surgery. Whatever it is you're interested in, you'll have so much opportunity here. Some of the best of the best faculty are here, and we just can't wait to work with you and figure out how you're going to make a contribution to our field."
Faculty Spotlight: Mitchell W. Cox, MD
Dr. Cox is an Associate Professor of Surgery in the Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery and Director of the Vascular Surgery Residency and Fellowship Programs. On the program's strengths Dr. Cox says, "I think the clinical volume and diversity is the biggest strength of our program. We have busy vascular surgery services at four different hospitals, and there isn't anything in vascular surgery that we aren't doing. We have two dedicated research years when our trainees can pursue academic interests and get ready for an academic career."
