    Collapse overview
    Throughout my career, I have been dually dedicated to providing hiqh quality inpatient non-ICU care and creating educational innovations. Having received my Master of Health Professions Education, I have spent most of my career building educational curricula to improve how we train physicians, including finding ways to help faculty be better educators. More recently, I have become invested in exploring workforce issues in Pediatric Hospital Medicine, as well as implicit bias in medical education.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
