Duke University School of Medicine Reviews
Duke University School of Medicine is a 4-year MD program that welcomed its first class in 1930. Duke provides students the opportunity to receive their medical education in a place where there have been a number of firsts—the first hand transplant, the first use of ultraviolet lamps in operating rooms, and the first bioengineering of a blood vessel. Duke has an innovative curriculum where the first year is basic science and the second year is clinical clerkships. Then students have 10-12 months of scholarly investigation and elective rotations during third and fourth year. Duke School of Medicine has a Duke Med Peer Support group which is a phone-in service that connects students with upperclassmen for guidance and encouragement.
