I completed medical school at Sidney Kimmel Medical College (formerly Jefferson Medical College) in Philadelphia, PA and my residency training in Internal Medicine at George Washington University Hospital in DC. I then went on to compete a 1-year fellowship in Medical Education, also at GW and am currently practicing as a hospitalist in DC. Specific topics of interest include the development of hospitalists and residents as clinician-educators, mentorship in medical education, and the role of literature/the humanities in medicine.
