Duke has long been recognized as a leader in surgical education and training, with a history of building multi-talented and skilled physicians and researchers who bring their passion for quality care to the communities they serve.
Now, faculty and residents in the Department of Surgery are exploring what matters most to surgeons-in-training, and establishing a new curriculum that seeks to redefine what it means to be a ‘good’ surgeon.

The Duke Pediatric Cardiology and Heart Surgery team is a multidisciplinary core comprised of surgeons, physicians, nurses, and experts who are dedicated to working together toward a common goal: providing exceptional care for as many sick children across North Carolina as possible.
The mission of the Duke Department of Surgery is rooted in fostering an inclusive and sustainably equitable environment throughout its multidisciplinary teams.
With diversity as one of its core values, Duke Surgery in recent years has experienced growth from–and established dedicated resources toward–enhanced diversity among faculty, trainees, staff, and partners.
