Personal profile

Research interests

Research interests include medical education, physician well-being and gender inequity.

Clinical interests

My clinical interests are in primary care medicine, specifically serving patient populations that are under-resourced. I spend my clinical time supervising internal medicine residents in the Primary Care Clinic in the Center for Outpatient Health. 

Education activities and interests

As a clinician educator, my primary role is in fulfilling the education missions of our internal medicine residency program. I served as an Associate Program Director for the Internal Residency program in the past and remain active in the educational endeavors of our residents. The majority of my time is spent in bedside teaching of residents and students in the outpatient setting in the internal medicine resident primary care clinic in the Center for Outpatient Health. I am also involved in gender equity program development specifically as a founding member and long-time director of the Forum for Women in Medicine (FWIM). FWIM is a professional development initiative for our women trainees in the Department of Medicine. In my new role as Vice Chair for Advancing Women's Careers I not only oversee FWIM but also lead the faculty initiative for promoting career development and advancement of women faculty called Advancing Women in Academic Medicine (AWAM). I also led the curriculum development efforts for our resident wellness ambulatory curriculum called Reflection Rounds and the resident financial education lecture series that is a joint effort with the Department of Pediatrics. 


I have a passion for mentoring medical students, residents, fellows, and junior faculty. Mentorship has taken many forms, including mentorship in clinical settings, mentorship of residents through the Mentors in Medicine program, mentorship of individuals in medical education, gender equity, and wellness projects, mentorship in curriculum development, and mentorship in career development. The mentorship relationships have led to publications, workshop and poster presentations regionally and nationally, and other opportunities for career advancement such as leadership positions.
