In 2021, the defining characteristics of Duke’s Section of Surgical Disciplines were flexibility and versatility, as our faculty, trainees, and staff faced new and evolving challenges.
The year began on a hopeful note: our clinicians and trainees were first in line to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, allowing for continued care of our patients as safely as possible. This shot in the arm was both literal and symbolic—a boost that launched our teams into a year focused on growth and innovation in all areas.
