Personal Statement

I have been an attending anesthesiologist at WC Medicine for over 30 years.  My backround in Internal Medicine and Pain Management has led me to care for complex medical patients requiring different types of surgical procedures.  I have been very involved in teaching both medical students residents. My training and teaching in medical simulation gives me an additional lens to view complex events and the skills to debrief and learn from these cases.
