How to Apply

Physicians who are eligible to apply to the program are required to have completed at least one year of clinical training in an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, (ACGME), approved residency. Many of our highly qualified trainees have already completed a primary care residency but resident applicants with one year of clinical training and additional expertise and/or experience relevant to occupational medicine are welcome to apply. Final acceptance to the program requires a license to practice medicine in the State of North Carolina and Duke GME clearance. Military physicians and those applicants desiring additional training in hyperbarics and undersea medicine are encouraged to apply. Minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. 

Applications are accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service beginning in August. Interviews are scheduled in October and November with an informal match in December for the following July start date.
