Faculty Colloquia

Trent Center Colloquia, led by Duke faculty, offer opportunities to engage in lively discussion of topics of significance and common interest in medical and non-medical spheres. In an informal, interdisciplinary environment, faculty, students, residents and fellows share viewpoints and discover avenues for collegial, intellectual exchange. Speakers have been drawn from the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Arts and Sciences, Divinity, the Sanford Institute, the Kenan Institute for Ethics, the Nicholas School, the Fuqua School of Business and the School of Law.
