Personal Statement

I strive to provide the most humanistic care possible to critically ill or critically injured patients and their families.  I aim to help educate the next generation of Acute Care Surgeons who specialize in trauma, emergency surgery and surgical critical care – not just in knowledge and technical expertise – but also in the healing art of medicine.   As a public health servant, I have often said the “best patient is the one we never see”. Prevention of sickness and injury locally, regionally, nationally and internationally is a lifelong passion.
