My Clinical Focus

I am passionate about teaching the next generation of pediatricians. I think the best way to do this is by empowering learners through mentoring, guidance and skillful and timely feedback. I enjoy creating innovative curriculae for the residency program, and am also active in quality improvement projects, both locally and nationally. I am researching ways to improve the process of shared decision making across the pediatric continuum, as well as researching the ways that different care models affect costs and experiences of care for medically complex children.
