Teaching Profile

Teaching Philosophy
I have a tremendous amount of gratitude for the teachers and mentors who enabled me to be successful in medicine. The primary reason I elected to stay in academia, rather than private practice, was to “pay it forward,” which I do by elevating other students, trainees and junior faculty.
