About the Duke program

What were you looking for in a residency program?

About Duke University and Durham

Where did you choose to live, and why?
My girlfriend and I chose to live in Broadstone Apartments to be close to both downtown Durham and Duke hospital.

I play pickup basketball, lift, golf, and try to get outside as much as I can. My girlfriend and I also enjoy traveling.
