About James Stanton Durham, MD, MS

Many experiences and values helped nudge me towards family medicine. I’ve seen family doctors work in such a breadth of settings, from small-town Vermont to rural Uganda and in indigenous communities in Maine and Minnesota. I wanted to pursue training that would equip me to provide care for rural communities and prepare me to adapt to serve the needs of any community I find myself working with. I also sense a similarity between my motivation...
Many experiences and values helped nudge me towards family medicine. I’ve seen family doctors work in such a breadth of settings, from small-town Vermont to rural Uganda and in indigenous communities in Maine and Minnesota. I wanted to pursue training that would equip me to provide care for rural communities and prepare me to adapt to serve the needs of any community I find myself working with. I also sense a similarity between my motivations to study history and train as a family doctor. Often, I think a primary care office provides the best vantage point into the realities being lived out in a community. A sort of present-tense history, too complicated and undifferentiated to tie into a neat story most of the time but so full of life. I’m thankful that each new patient brings their own stories and experiences, and I’m grateful to have a role to play in helping my patients live healthy and fulfilling lives. In my free time, I like to play tennis and stay active outside with things like hiking and canoeing. I also really like to read and take photographs when I get the chance.
