Going Full Circle: A Residency Rooted in Revolutionary Principles

The Duke’s Department of Community and Family Medicine was established in 1966 in the midst of the civil rights movement with an emphasis on health equity and a mission to improve the health of people in their communities. My documentary explores the links between the department’s early roots and the recent re-design of the Family Medicine Residency Program to train family physicians who are excellent clinicians, leaders with expertise in population health, community engaged advocates, and change agents.
