Dr. Chung is from a small town in Eastern NC. She attended the NC School of Science & Mathematics and then traveled a few blocks down the street to attend Duke University for college. Before matriculating into medical school, she spent a year serving in City Year, an AmeriCorps program based in Seattle, WA. Afterwards she returned to Eastern NC to complete medical school at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University. She found herself back in Durham for her Internal Medicine & Pediatrics (Med Peds) residency at Duke, completed a chief year in Pediatrics, and has remained on faculty ever since.
Clinically, she sees adults and pediatric patients in the outpatient setting and also does inpatient Pediatrics. Her interests include patient care and medical education for medical students and residents. She previously taught in Clinical Skills Foundation 1 (CSF1) and Clinical Skills Immersion/Clinical Skills Course (CSI/CSC) and was the Director of the Capstone Course before transitioning to the Advisory Dean role. She has enjoyed teaching and witnessing students' clinical growth from the first through fourth years, where Duke medical students have endured her zany mnemonics. She continues to teach in the Capstone Course, as a small group faculty member. Now as an Advisory Dean, she looks forward to guiding students in their journey through medical school in other ways.
