I am a hospital medicine physician interested in quality improvement, patient safety, and medical education. My current QI and research projects include work on readmissions, clinical documentation improvement, ORYX measures, medication reconciliation, and optimization of chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease management and referral patterns. I oversee QI education and projects for the Internal Medicine Residency Program at Duke as the Associate Program Director for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety and help co-lead our Residency Patient Safety and Quality Council.
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 have worked with students performing research in Haiti via the SRT program and DGHI.
