DUSON Partnerships Extend Across Campus & Around the World

At Duke, a culture of interprofessional and interdisciplinary collaboration is becoming the norm, rather than the exception. DUSON faculty and students are redefining how creative partnerships can deepen professional understanding, innovate solutions to complex challenges and drive discovery and translation of knowledge in new and exciting ways. These collaborations are challenging traditional silos of research, clinical practice, and community service.
