Duke Orthopaedics seeks a diverse candidate pool of BC/BE Orthopaedic surgeons for physician opportunities. The department has embarked on an initiative led by faculty, staff, residents, and medical students, to help grow the community of underrepresented minorities and females in orthopaedics. This initiative supports the department’s culture of value and respect for all – faculty, trainees, patients, and our community as a whole.
Our searches include every area of orthopaedics. Ideal candidates will be fellowship trained in their subspecialty and have a strong interest in research and teaching. Candidates with research aspirations can receive a university appointment and support. Academic rank and salary will be commensurate with experience and training.
Clinical practices are expanding, with surgical cases performed at one of three Duke Health hospitals or at one of our ambulatory surgical centers.
The Duke community continues to grow increasingly diverse, adding depth and richness to our experience. Duke is located in Durham, with a population of 251,800 (2014) made up of 41% African Americans and 13.2% Hispanics. The opportunities to expand our individual and collective knowledge to work effectively with people from different perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences continue at a remarkable pace. The greater Triangle area of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill as a whole is culturally diverse, economically resilient, and nationally recognized as an excellent place to live and work. We invite you to join us.
