I am an academic physician scientist with specialty practice in the area of hematologic malignancies. My research focus is on cancer immunology. I have published multiple papers on the biology of the blood cancer multiple myeloma. I am currently in practice and see patient in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. I am also Co-Director of an autologous stem cell transplant program.
Allyson received her medical degree from the UC Berkeley - UCSF Joint Medical Program, during which she completed research in global health and was awarded a FASPE fellowship (Fellowship at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics). She then moved to Seattle for training in Internal Medicine at the University of Washington, where she was active in work on primary care innovation, resident and medical student wellness, and teaching about communication. She completed fellowship in the UW Hospice and Palliative Medicine Program in 2019.

Brian is a third year internal medicine resident at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts.
Current Pulmonary and Critical Care fellow at the University of Colorado/National Jewish Health.
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 practiting 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.
My experiences in training and clinical practice at the Texas/Mexico border, the Bronx, and in socialized New Zealand have all made me the physician that I am today: practicing and learning medicine in such disparate environments served to underscore the importance of seeking to empathically understand each patient’s narrative and their social context as equally as elucidating their underlying diagnosis. I currently focus my clinical effort in two areas: as a palliative care physician at Parkland Hospital, a safety net health system in Dallas, and an academic hospitalist in both a quartenary university hospital system and Parkland Hospital. In my role as UT Southwestern Internal Medicine Clerkship Co-director and Colleges Mentor, I create a safe learning environment in which our learners continually strive to grow in the application of evidence-based medicine, aspire to view medicine from their patients’ perspectives with empathy and embed reflection into their daily practice.
