I am associate professor of medicine and associate chief for education in the section of general internal medicine. I am committed to the growth and advancement of clinician educators to both achieve professional fulfillment and contribute to the mission of the Department of Medicine. I am open to mentor trainees, early and mid-career faculty who wish to develop their careers as successful educators. In addition to mentoring, I am trained as a coach and use a positive psychology framework that incorporates ones strengths and past successes to navigate towards a future vision of themselves. I advocate for the successful promotion of educators using metrics not reflected in the usual measures of researchers. Examples include websites, online curricula and altmetrics that represent dissemination and the scholarship of teaching other than traditional publications.
