Calvin Gross, MD, MDiv.

Medical School: UNC

Graduate School: Duke

Undergraduate: Princeton

Calvin is originally from Charlotte and attended Princeton University where he majored in the Classics.  As a medical student, he sought to understand the deep connections we make with our patients and so completed a Master of Theological Studies degree through the Duke Divinity School, focusing on theology and ethics.  Calvin has actively volunteered in caring for the vulnerable – from refugees to the elderly.  He enjoys writing, and was able to publish a thought piece in Academic Medicine, reflecting on the timing of when students take the Hippocratic Oath and its impact.  At this point, he is most interested in a career in Hospice and Palliative Medicine. In recognition of his outstanding humanism and academic achievements, Calvin was inducted into both the AOA and Gold Humanism Honor Societies. Calvin’s wife is pursuing her PhD at Duke and in his free time he enjoys reading, cooking, gardening, and tabletop RPG games.
