New Mobile App Gateway Promotes Innovation

Innovation is always on the forefront of minds at Duke University and Duke Health System. We all know where health care has been, and where it is now—but what about where it will be in about five or even ten years from now? The science behind health care and how health care professionals can effectively treat patients is evolving, and innovators at Duke want to make sure that they stay on top of the ever-changing times.

Telepresence Robots

Two Accelerated Bachelor of Science of Nursing (ABSN) students enter a simulation lab to begin an assessment and treatment of a pediatric patient when the child’s status suddenly changes. As they would in a real-life situation, they summon the on-call provider. Minutes later, the provider, an advanced practice nursing student who knows nothing about the case arrives – but not in the traditional sense.

MEDIA Grant Funding

The Graduate School has awarded seven Professional Development Grants to support discipline-specific programming for graduate students in 2018. The grants, established in 2014, award up to $2,000 to help graduate students and their departments create discipline-specific professional development programming and resources for exploring both academic and broad career options. Such programming complements the offerings from The Graduate School, which focus on topics that are applicable across disciplines.
