In 2010, Pediatrician and Photographer John Moses and I launched a documentary mentorship for Duke physician residents nearing the end of their training. Residents are given the skills, equipment, mentoring and time to explore a medical issue, question or story using documentary methods. We offer mentoring in film, audio, photography, web and writing. At the conclusion of the mentorship, residents share their work with colleagues and medical students.
