I have been the Emergency Medicine Residency Director at Doctors Hospital since July 1998.  During my entire tenure, my overall goal has been to provide residents with a supportive learning environment, informative didactic sessions, exposure to diverse pathology and a healthy lifestyle.  I am dedicated to teaching and utilizing evidenced based medicine where possible while providing sound medical decision making skills where evidence is lacking.

I have long recognized that learning to be an emergency physician is an arduous process.  I have also recognized that it can be a tremendous amount of fun.  My goal for each resident is to learn emergency medicine and have a good time doing it.  I believe this has been accomplished at our program.

I pride myself on the fact that residents consider me to be an advocate for their health and wellbeing.  I strive to maximize resident wellness during residency and instill the skills to promote an active, happy, sustaining practice in emergency medicine.
