Harbor-UCLA Pediatric Interview Series
Harbor-UCLA Pediatrics Resident Alumnus Dr. Linton Yee is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Hospital and Emergency Medicine at Duke University. At the 2011 Annual Duke University Spring Faculty Meeting, Dr. Yee was awarded a Master Clinician/Teacher Award. The award honors individuals with exemplary records of accomplishment and service in clinical care and teaching.
After graduating from the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School Of Medicine in 1988, Yee completed his residency in pediatrics at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in 1991 and his fellowship in pediatric emergency medicine at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in 1994.
In addition to Duke University School of Medicine’s emphasis on education, the Harbor-UCLA experience played a key role in the decision to join the faculty at Duke in 2007. Joseph St. Geme, Jr., M.D.– the father of Duke’s current Chair of Pediatrics – had hired many of the pediatric faculty at Harbor-UCLA, whom Yee considered to be instrumental in his training.
