Henry Rice


I am a Professor of Surgery and Pediatrics at Duke, and have served as the Division Chief of Pediatric Surgery since 2007. During this time, I have overseen our division's clinical, teaching, and research missions, as well as have served in numerous departmental and institutional roles within Duke Children's services. Over the past several years, I have developed an increasing interest in global surgery, particularly on clinical and research questions that challenge the practice of pediatric surgery in resource-constrained environments. Rice leads the Duke-Guatemala Pediatric Surgery/Urology Project, an ongoing clinical, educational, and research collaboration with the Moore Pediatric Surgery Center in Guatemala.
