Duke physicians practicing general internal medicine aspire to the following:
Provide quality care for our patients with a focus on patient satisfaction and innovative customer service.
Act as a patient-centered medical home for our patients. Some Duke internists have received national recognition as quality providers in managing diabetes and heart disease and for excellence in practice management by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
Promote the education and development of faculty and resident physicians through ongoing graduate and continuing medical education at some internal medicine practices.
Remain actively engaged within the Duke University Health System through ongoing relationships with Duke University Hospital, Durham Regional Hospital, Select Specialty Hospital, the Duke University School of Medicine, Duke Integrative Medicine, the Fuqua School of Business at Duke, and the Duke Institute for Genome Sciences and Policy.
