My current QI and research projects include work on readmissions, hospital-acquired infections, clinical documentation improvement, and optimization of chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease management and referral patterns. I also oversee QI education and projects for the Internal Medicine Residency Program as the Associate Program Director for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety.
My other teaching roles include housestaff and student clinical teaching and oversight on our general medicine wards, housestaff evidence-based medicine training via case and journal article presentations during resident reports, and serving as a small group leader for a second-year medical student course on case-based clinical management. I also work annually with undergraduate students performing research in Haiti via the SRT program and DGHI.
