The courses in the program are available to qualified individuals who want to acquire specific skills but who do not want to pursue the master's degree. Such individuals include health professionals, Duke faculty and staff, post-doctoral fellows, and undergraduate/graduate degree students. This option allows the flexibility of taking various combinations of courses subject only to constraints imposed by course prerequisites. For each course, due to class size, a limited number of non-degree students will be allowed to enroll.
Applicants seeking admission must: (a) submit the Non-Degree Student application and (b) provide one letter of evaluation. The General letter of evaluation should be written by someone qualified to testify to the candidate's capacity for graduate work. The completed application, General letter of evaluation, and transcripts (sent to the program directly from the evaluator or issuing institution) may be emailed to ClinicalLeadership@mc.duke.edu or faxed to 919.613.6899, Attn: Clinical Leadership Program, Division of Community Health.
The requirement to provide copies of transcripts is waived for applicants currently enrolled in another Duke University undergraduate or graduate program and Duke post-doctoral fellows.
