Professional Background

I am an academic general pediatrician involved in teaching, research and clinical care.

How has being an English graduate from Duke University helped shape your professional success?

The Duke PhD positively influenced the various committees that considered me for professorial and administrative posts. English studies in general developed a liberal habit of mind and an ease of written and oral communication that served me well in positions requiring wide sympathies and effective communication skills.
