Fourth Year Residents

Alexandra Balaban

Hometown: Cary, NC
College: Duke University
Medical School: University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine
Fellowship Plans: Surgical Pathology and Cytopathology.
Career Goals: Community practice pathology, but I haven’t ruled out academics.
Hobbies and Interests: I enjoy gardening, cooking, hiking, travelling and dragon boating. I also like to visit art galleries and am excited to take advantage of the music, shows, and dance performances that take place at Duke, UNC, and DPAC. I also will never turn down the opportunity to watch the latest Netflix series.
Why Duke: Two things stood out to me during my externship at Duke: the level of expertise of the faculty and the friendliness of everyone in the program. At Duke, you get to sign out each organ system with an expert in the field and the faculty are open to questions and eager to teach. The residents are extremely intelligent and accomplished but never boastful. They have interesting and unique personalities and backgrounds, and I am looking forward to spending the next four years with them!
Why Durham: Durham and the surrounding Chapel Hill/Raleigh area combine many things that I love to do. There are ample hiking and outdoors activities available, with my favorite places to visit being the Eno River and Umstead State Park. The Duke Gardens and JC Raulston Arboretum are great to visit any time of the year. The annual American Dance Festival is held in Durham. There is the historic Carolina Theater. There are numerous concerts, plays, and dance performances held at Duke, UNC, and DPAC. The Durham/Chapel Hill/Raleigh area has many excellent restaurants with cuisine ranging from Thai, Vietnamese, and Chinese, to Indian, French and amazing BBQ. Finally, Durham is affordable with many excellent apartments within a 10-15 minute drive to the hospital.

 

Haley Davis

Hometown: Salt Lake City, UT
College: University of Utah
Medical School: University of Utah School of Medicine
Fellowship Plans: Cytopathology
Career Goals: I still don’t know where I would like to end up! I could see myself finding a career in academics or the community fulfilling.
Hobbies and Interests:I love spending time with my husband and son, walking my dog, cooking, reading, and getting outdoors to hike/bike/camp as often as possible. I miss skiing back in Utah!
Why Duke: Duke is a program that has endless opportunity. We are a busy academic institution with the opportunity to see many complex, rare, and fascinating cases, while also getting a good amount of “bread and butter” cases. We have incredibly supportive faculty and staff. Despite having many cases, we are able to spend much of our time at the hospital learning, and still lead fulfilling lives outside the hospital!
Why Durham: Durham has many perks! It is affordable, very green, pleasant weather for the most part, and there are lots of fun places to explore outdoors and indoors! There is a lot of great food in the area as well.

 

Richard Davis

Hometown: Fayetteville, GA
College: The Georgia Institute of Technology
Medical School: Tulane University
Fellowship Plans: My initial interests upon entering residency training are Surgical Pathology, Clinical Immunology, and Hematopathology. However, I also have a background in Bioinformatics and am considering Clinical Pathology Informatics fellowships, too.
Career Goals: I am open to a wide variety of practice settings. I could see myself in academic, private, governmental, and/or industry settings. Having a public health and biotechnology background, I would love to incorporate either of those into a clinical practice setting if presented with the right opportunity.
Hobbies and Interests: I have a wide array of hobbies and interests both related and unrelated to work. I have always been involved in a local church. I also love working out at the gym, hiking in the Smoky Mountains, computer programming, touring local attractions, exploring the French Quarter when I am in New Orleans, watching college sports (Go Jackets and Roll Wave!), and spending time with friends and family.
Why Duke: Duke’s reputation is on par with any institution in the country. The opportunities for clinical training and research under world-class faculty combined with Duke’s proximity to the innovative Research Triangle Park make Duke an exciting place to be. The campus is beautiful, and the training facilities are second-to-none. The faculty in the pathology department strongly advocate for their residents’ training needs within the context of DUMC and seek to provide an optimal training experience. However, what really set Duke apart on interview day were the faculty and residents who really seemed to enjoy being at Duke. The residents were the right balance of being pushed to the frontiers of their knowledge-base and ability but not over-burdened.
Why Durham: Being from nearby Georgia, I grew up going on a lot of family vacations to North Carolina and have always loved the state. Though I haven’t been able to explore all the city just yet, Durham is big enough where there is always something to do, yet small enough so that the traffic and cost of living are much more manageable than bigger metropolitan areas. The Eno River State Park and Duke Gardens are cool, easily-accessible, local outdoor venues. I love baseball and basketball, so I hope to catch some Durham Bulls and Duke basketball games. The Triangle area is a young, growing area with a lively college and young professional scene, but it also has a rich history, too. Durham is also a quick day-drive to both the Appalachian Mountains and the beaches of the Carolina coast. Furthermore, it is a short, cheap flight or an easy drive to visit my family back in Atlanta.

Monica Abdelmalak

Hometown: Tampa, FL
College: University of Florida
Medical School: University of Central Florida College of Medicine

Why Durham: The Triangle offers many aspects of living in a big city which I love, such as a growing food scene, breweries, diverse culture, and events in the arts as well as the coziness of living in a small town with comfortable living, community events, farmers markets, and easy access to nature.

 

 

Derald Charles

Hometown: Shreveport, LA
College: Baylor University
Medical School: University of Texas Medical Branch School of Medicine
Fellowship Plans: Forensic Pathology (and potentially neuropathology and/or cardiovascular pathology)
Career Goals: I intend to become a Medical Examiner, conduct research in the field of forensics, and also maintain an affiliation with an academic institution for teaching opportunities.
Hobbies and Interests: All sorts of gardening (including veggies, fruits, flowers, and bonsai), hiking, camping, and attending local festivals.
Why Duke: In addition to Duke's academic rigor, the collegial culture among faculty and residents really stuck in my mind following my visit.  Faculty were approachable and friendly, and the residents also all seemed genuinely happy with their training environment. Additionally, I felt that there were ample opportunities to plug into academic research or even conduct original research. Lastly, but equally important for my career goals, Duke Pathology offers an incredible training in autopsy pathology (among other fields) where I will have the opportunity to learn from fantastic pathology assistants and experts in autopsy pathology, cardiovascular pathology, and neuropathology.
Why Durham: Durham struck me as a beautiful, welcoming city that offers plenty to do while also having a small town feel. I definitely plan on taking day trips/weekend trips to the mountains and coast, and I'm excited to explore festivals and events taking place here in Durham. The cost of living is great, and the triangle offers numerous career opportunities for my partner as well. An additional bonus is that we have the chance to rotate through and work for the N.C. Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.  

 

Evelyna Kliassov

Hometown: Raleigh, NC
College: Duke University
Medical school: University of North Carolina
Fellowship plans: To be determined
Career goals: Continuing to stay involved in academic pathology by teaching, mentoring and attending local and national conferences.
Hobbies and interests: Going to the beach, seafood, walks with my cockapoo, piano, painting, and tennis. I am fortunate that my family lives closeby, so I enjoy going home to see them as often as I can. I really enjoy checking out local art galleries or browsing/exploring new and upcoming artists on social media especially if they are local.
Why Duke: The Duke Pathology Residency Program has a great variety and volume of specimens, and the residents and faculty are so welcoming, knowledgeable, and most of all friendly. There are boundless opportunities for research, involvement in teaching and a strong focus on education. Additionally there is a great balance of autonomy and support. I felt incredibly happy and comfortable at Duke on interview day, and knew this was the place for me!
Why Durham: Durham has so much to offer in terms of good food, culture, outdoor activities, music and art. It’s very relaxing to run in the Duke Forest, take a stroll through the Duke Gardens, or hike around the Eno River.  I attended Duke for my undergraduate studies, and had an amazing time both within the academic environment as well as surrounding city. Durham is an incredibly fun and affordable city, and you can always find something to do when you have a day off.

 

David McKenzie

Hometown: Kansas City, KS
College: University of Kansas
Medical School: University of Kansas School of Medicine

Career Goals: Also undecided. At the moment I like the idea of working at a VA to encompass aspects of both private and academics.
Hobbies and Interests: I enjoy disc golf, hiking, biking, and, being from Kansas City, barbecuing! I also love sports…love the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals and my Kansas Jayhawks, and I suspect I’ll become a bit of a Duke fan while I am here.

It is a reputable, prestigious program with friendly and personable attendings with a passion for teaching, and I truly believe the program will help me reach whatever career goals I make for myself.

Why Durham: Durham was another piece of the factors that drew my wife and I to Duke. It’s affordable, it has great diversity and culture, abundant attractions in the triangle area, and the favorable climate makes it great for outdoor adventures.

The area is beautiful, it is close to my friends and not too far away from my family back in Florida.
