Years at Duke: Nine

What I do at Duke:

Railey works as an assistant professor in Duke’s Department of Community and Medicine and sees patients as a family physician at the Duke Family Medical Center. He thrives on the energy of teaching. “Learners at Duke have an energy that is infectious,” said Railey, who mostly teaches courses in the Physician Assistant Program for first year students. Railey will also serve as the course director of the new Cultural Determinants of Health and Health Disparities course, beginning with the incoming Doctor of Medicine program class of 2021. The course will be the first required Duke School of Medicine program course that will explore sociocultural influences on health and wellness.
