Current Rheumatology Fellows

Durga Adhikari, MD
Second Year Rheumatology Fellow
919-966-0576

Education:
BS, Biology, Saint Xavier’s Campus, Nepal
MBBS, Manipal College of Medical Sciences, Nepal
Resident, Saint Agnes Hospital Internal Medicine  

I am a medical graduate from Nepal. I completed Internal Medicine Residency from Saint Agnes Hospital, Baltimore, Maryland and am interested in inflammatory arthritis and newer, innovative treatments. Outside of medicine, I like running, trekking and traveling. 

My desire to learn and understand the complexity of human body enticed me to pursue medicine as my career. I find Rheumatology to be interesting and challenging at the same time as most of the disorders involve multiple organ systems and a lot of questions still remain unanswered.  Fellowships give young physicians like me the opportunity to make significant contributions to the field. I hope to pursue a career as a clinical educator in Rheumatology.

 

David Gray, MD
Second Year Rheumatology Fellow
919-966-0576

Education:
BA, Economics, Williams Collage
MD, Medical University of South Carolina
Resident, Tufts University Medical Center

 I earned a BA in Economics at Williams College, a MD with Masters of Science in Clinical Research at MUSC, and completed internal medicine training at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, MA.  Clinically, I am interested in general rheumatology, but I have a particular interest in health economics and access to care. 

 I decided to enter medicine because I enjoy solving people's problems, particularly with improving quality of life using objective data. I enjoy the challenge of trying to understand the complexities of health and disease.  Rheumatology is a field that requires constant learning and study, which I find exciting.  I plan to pursue a career largely focused on clinical rheumatology, either in private practice or in an academic setting with a clinical advisor role in health economics research.
