Personal Statement

I am proud to be part of a team that continually strives to improve the care for children. Being in the academic environment at Weill Cornell provides me a career that is both diverse and challenging. As a pediatric hospitalist, my time is divided between caring for children in our inpatient unit, our newborn nursery and time spent teaching resident physicians. I always aim to provide families with high quality care and clear communication during what can be a very stressful time for the whole family.
