      Duke is committed to mentorship and growth of its team, of which I am living proof. I was supported by the many clinicians at Duke Primary Care in Oxford while I was a medical assistant. Thanks to the support of the team at DPC Oxford, I learned a lot and was accepted to Duke PA School and attended from 2019-2021. Everyone remains supportive as I return and begin practicing as a PA.
