Today on the blog, Duke Family Medicine Residency's program director gives us a look behind the scenes at this year's interview process and shares her excitement about the incoming crop of residents (spoiler: two of them are from PCP!).

It was that time of the year. Match Day was approaching, and some nights I would lie awake, wondering who our new interns would be.
I would think of the outstanding young men and women we interviewed this recruiting season for the Duke Family Medicine Residency Program and the amazing conversations that often felt rushed in a 30-minute interview, feeling that I had just met a peer, a soul mate, a passionate advocate, someone with an extremely intelligent mind. I would think of the wealth of information they shared, their willingness, their passion and what steps they had taken in their lives to be sitting in front me, a program director in a family medicine residency program in an academic medical center.
