Dr. Kimberly Ingersoll and Dr. Gustaaf deRidder

Kim Ingersoll is a second year resident at Duke.  She attended medical school at the University of Missouri - Columbia, where her interest in pathology was sparked during her participation in a post-sophomore fellowship in pathology.  She is currently participating in the GME Patient Safety and Quality Improvement (PSQI) program concentration.  She also serves as one of her program's resident representatives to the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP).  After completing her AP/CP residency training at Duke, she plans to pursue fellowship training in hematopathology and surgical pathology.

Gustaaf deRidder is a rising PGY4 resident in Pathology.  He is a Belgian-American dual citizen who attended high school in Greenville, SC, followed by undergraduate studies at the University of South Carolina Honors College in Columbia, SC.  After two years at the NIH, he entered the Medical Scientist Training Program at Duke University. Gustaaf finished medical school and earned a PhD in the Pathology department under Dr. Salvatore Pizzo. Gustaaf particularly enjoys the opportunity to teach the pathology assistant and medical students at Duke.  He will join a Transfusion Medicine fellowship at Bloodworks in Seattle, WA after finishing his residency.  Gustaaf has authorship on 15 published or accepted peer-reviewed articles and has presented his work at United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology, Experimental Biology, International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis, American Society for Investigative Pathology, and American Society for Human Genetics meetings.
