Medical doctor. During his 36 years on the Duke medical faculty, he established himself as a national leader in the diagnosis and treatment of liver disease. In 1985, he helped create Duke's Liver Transplant Program- the first in North Carolina.
While his contributions in the field of liver disease were many, his proudest professional accomplishment was the training of hundreds of medical students, residents and fellows. In 2002, the Division of Gastroenterology created the Paul G. Killenberg Medical Teaching award and named him the first recipient.
He was named Professor Emeritus of Medicine by the Duke University Medical Center and served as Ombudsman for the University. In 2006, he was honored with the Duke Medical Alumni Association's Distinguished Faculty Award.
He earned an undergraduate degree from Yale University in 1959 and a medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1963. He interned and was chief medical resident at University Hospitals and Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH.
He served in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, earning the Bronze Star for service in Vietnam.
He was a faithful member of Pilgrim United Church of Christ in Durham; was involved in prison ministry; and served as church Moderator and Trustee.
His volunteer service to the Durham community included Durham System of Care, Housing for New Hope, and Boy Scout Troop 458. For his leadership of the Emergency Energy Fund, he received a volunteer of the year award.
