As an academic hospitalist and clinician educator, I predominantly care for hospitalized patients and teach residents, interns and students. My focus is on teaching evidence-based medicine and bringing it to the bedside. I also precept residents in the outpatient setting. In addition, I teach first year students in the Introduction to Clinical Medicine course.
As a consultant, I assist the surgical and psychiatric services with optimal perioperative management and care for general medical issues.
I am interested in patient safety and quality initiatives, and as such, I am a Venous Thromboembolism Prophylaxis Committee physician leader. I am also a member of the Medical Care Policy Committee.
