Rethinking Surgical Education

Our mission is to reimagine postgraduate surgical education at Duke University School of Medicine in light of character formation and visions of human flourishing.

Our Vision

Our programmatic development is focused on helping residents rediscover meaning and purpose in their work, develop the character traits necessary to sustain their calling, and ultimately promote flourishing in their surgical practice.

The Project

At Duke, we have begun to create a parallel community rooted in friendship and mutual accountability, where difficult questions are raised, and new habits and practices are formed.
