Medical education, residency training, physician workforce diversity, health disparities, underserved and vulnerable populations, primary care internal medicine

Summary of Academic Interests:

I am interested in both medical education and health disparities, and how the two intersect. In particular I am interested in how we can train physicians to work effectively with underserved and vulnerable patients, and strategies to promote diversity in the physician workforce. I am also interested in medical education in the ambulatory setting.
