Research & Clinical Interest

My research and scholarly interests include clinical vignettes, case reports and chart reviews. My most enjoyable experiences come from educational talks, advancement of and engagement in medical education, mentorship and growth of residents and hospitalists, and development of the Jefferson Internal Medicine Residency Hospital Medicine Career Pathway. I am always looking to grow my library of educational talks and engage learners with novel and exciting learning strategies. I also enjoy engaging with the EMR in ways that advance clinical practice and optimize physician time and effort to allow for bedside patient care.
