Salary employees accrue 35 PTO days a year (40 days after 5 years) for use for any days off, holidays, sick, vacation etc.
To add to the comment about being written up/fired for taking sick days. The first day you call out is considered an unscheduled pto day, any consecutive days taken off after are considered scheduled PTO. If you call out sick on Monday but you remain sick the entire week you only claim one day as unscheduled the rest of the week is considered scheduled. If you know midday today that you will need to take PTO tomorrow, that is considered a scheduled PTO day under most circumstances. Duke is very flexible about work/life balance and in my department family needs and school events come first and are supported. Clinical positions may differ due to patient care needs.

It, seems to be a long process, at this time they are more focused on internal candidates for the hiring process, and this may take longer than anticipated.
