Dr. Deng Madut completed the Global Health Infectious Diseases Fellowship in 2019. In 2021, he became an Assistant Research Professor in Global Health at DGHI and is also an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Duke Division of Infectious Diseases. He completed his medical training at Texas Tech School of Medicine and his Internal Medicine residency at Duke.  As part of the Hubert-Yeargan Center’s global health elective rotations program, Dr. Madut spent three months working at Moi Teaching Hospital in Eldoret, Kenya at the end of his residency. There he was exposed to AMPATH, whose holistic and collaborative approach to patient care in a resource-limited setting led him to pursue a career in global health with a focus on implementation and sustainability of HIV care and prevention strategies. As a Global Health Fellow, he investigated the barriers that impede the implementation of effective care strategies and worked in a multidisciplinary setting to address these barriers under the mentorship of Drs. Nathan Thielman and Matt Rubach at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre in Moshi, Tanzania.
