I am a palliative care physician and medical educator, primarily taking care of hospitalized patients and working with medical students, residents, and fellows at Duke University Hospital. I am particularly interested in integrating palliative care into the care of patients with hematologic malignancies. I am also interested in exploring how educational experiences in palliative care shape the professional identities of medical learners in medical school, residency, and fellowship.
