Nnaemeka Eze, MD
Global Health and General Surgery Resident
Nnaemeka Eze, MD, is currently a global health resident in Duke’s General Surgery program. He earned his undergraduate degree from Harding University and his medical degree from Howard University College of Medicine. He earned his Masters of Public Health-Global Health from Harvard. He currently serves as a Captain in the United States Army Reserve Medical Corps.
Dr. Eze’s research interest is focused on reducing surgical disparities in LMICs through the development of low cost surgical supplies. Training surgeons in LMICs is important but so is ensuring that they have steady and stable access to the surgical supplies they need to provide care to their local populations. He believes this will be essential in reducing brain drain which continues to rob LMICs of surgical talents.
