Leading Clinical Care

Introductory graphic

Our country and the world face a crisis in health care, with wide-spread chronic disease, aging populations, economic and geographic barriers to care, and the growing complexity of care for survivors of cancer and other diseases. At the same time, advances in genomics and genetics challenge us to develop new personalized models of treatment and prevention. Duke Medicine was an early leader in clinical and translational research, new models of global and community health, reinventing the academic health system, and pioneering integrative and personalized medicine. At the heart of every Duke Medicine innovation is a passion to deliver the best care in the most compassionate manner to everyone who needs it.
