Get Involved

Alumni are a tremendous asset to the Duke Health community, and our goal is to help you connect in ways that are meaningful and fulfilling to you.

We have a number of volunteer opportunities through the Duke Medical Alumni Association and the Duke Alumni Association that will enable you to share your knowledge and experience for the betterment of our community.


The Help Our Students Travel (HOST) program connects current Duke SOM students or house staff traveling for residency or fellowship interviews with alumni hosts in the vicinity of their interview sites.
