About Duke Health
Duke Health conceptually integrates the Duke University Health System, the Duke University School of Medicine, and the Duke University School of Nursing. It is the combination of research, clinical care, and education that takes place through the efforts of our faculty, staff, students, and trainees at many different sites throughout our region and worldwide. Duke created this extensive network of community-based primary care physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners in 1994. Duke Primary Care physicians have consulting associate faculty appointments with Duke in their respective academic departments.
