Personal Statement

As a physician and educator, my passion is in creating new and exciting medical education environments that challenge our conventions and transform the ways we teach, learn, and assess our students. My personal goal is to invent innovative teaching methods that resonate with students, break new ground in student-faculty learning interactions, and develop novel approaches to assessment.
