Investigate human physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology using tools of cardiovascular/respiratory physiology, molecular pharmacology, neurobiology, and environmental science. This program excludes Orthopedic Surgery which is covered under the Biomedical Engineering and Surgery program.
Application of quantitative and analytical methods to study physiology of cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems. Orthopedic clinical and basic science projects are covered in this program.
Conduct interdisciplinary research on a topic related to health and health disparities in a global context, such as infectious diseases, epidemiology, clinical microbiology, translational medicine and social science. Students may also choose to pursue the Duke Master of Science in Global Health
The intent of creating a dedicated medical education research track is to train future medical education scholars by incorporating a rigorous quantitative education research experience with didactic training and practical experience in educational theory and research skills.
Investigate basic and clinical neurosciences, including molecular/cellular neuroscience, neuroimaging, developmental neurobiology, systems/cognitive neuroscience, and neurobiology of disease.
Pathology is the study of disease through the utilization of structural and functional changes to gain information about the human organism's response to injury. The goal of the Pathology Study Program is to provide the medical student with a thorough learning experience in pathology and laboratory medicine under the guidance of a senior faculty preceptor. The essential elements of this program are: a) independent, but guided, research experience (bench or library), and b) active participation in small group seminars.
This study program is available only to PCLT students.
Offers students committed to primary care an opportunity to develop skills needed for patient centered care and community-engaged, population-based practice
