How has being a Mathematics graduate from Duke helped shape your professional success?

"I don't use mathematics directly much as a pediatrician, but having a background in it does allow me to more critically read journal articles as I can better understand the statistics. I do also use it to calculate maintenance fluids for all children, caloric intake & urine output for babies, etc."
