Hiatus

Well, it's been a long hiatus. I'm 5 months away from finishing my Chief Residency in General Surgery here at Duke. Imminently I am signing on to stay at Duke in a research-weighted position in the Department of Surgery. I've learned an tremendous amount in the five dense (and intense) years of clinical work on the wards and in the operating theater here. As always, I owe a great deal to my patients, it's been a privilege to serve them. And to my clinical mentors I'm indebted to the clarity in problem solving that surgeons are so adept at inculcating.

I look forward to starting in the summer.
