A note of thanks from the Associate Program Director for Ambulatory Care



Daniella Zipkin, MD

Residents in the internal medicine training program see patients regularly at one of three continuity clinic sites. The ambulatory portion of their education is unique in allowing a longitudinal view of residents’ progress and building longer term relationships with both faculty and patients. Many DGIM faculty carve out a portion of their time to precept residents during their clinics. We would like to take a moment to acknowledge our division faculty who have brought their skill and dedication to teaching residents in the clinic setting this year. Thank you for all that you have done for ambulatory teaching at Duke! We look forward to further strengthening the residents’ experience in ambulatory medicine.

Listed below are the incoming, current, and outgoing teaching faculty at the clinics as of July 2016!
