William Edwards Bynum
Since arriving to Duke in October 2017, I have enjoyed a highly rewarding mix of patient care, teaching, and research. Prior to coming to Duke, I served seven years on active duty in the US Air Force, during which I served as faculty in the NCC Family Medicine Residency (Fort Belvoir, VA), deployed to Djibouti in support of regional operations, and served multiple congressional delegations as a traveling physician.
I currently have the privilege of 1) providing outpatient primary care to patients from the Durham region, 2) educating Duke family medicine residents, medical students, and physician assistant students, 3) serving as the Associate Program Director of the Duke Family Medicine Residency, and 4) researching self-conscious emotion (shame, guilt, & pride) in medical learners. In addition to ongoing empiric research, I have given numerous seminars, grand rounds, and workshops on shame in medical education, both here at Duke and in other organizations and national meetings. I am excited by Duke's commitment to building supportive, psychologically safe learning environments and very much look forward to contributing to these ongoing efforts.
