One of my main interests continues to be in resident education.  I supervise and teach the house staff in their outpatient medical clinics at both the Baltimore VAMC and the University Health Center. I also facilitate a weekly Literature in Medicine series with the internal medicine residents.


As an Associate Program Director, I am actively involved in the recruitment of our future house staff, and continue to work closely with them during their residency.

I continue to have direct patient-care responsibilities at the Faculty Practice as well as the Baltimore VAMC
