MD, University of Alabama at Birmingham

I serve as the program director for the rheumatology fellowship program and have a shared focus in medical education and in musculoskeletal ultrasound development. I helped found and lead the training program for USSONAR, the preeminent group for musculoskeletal ultrasound education in North America. I was selected to the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) Core Expert Panel for appropriateness criteria for musculoskeletal ultrasound use in rheumatology as well as the ACR musculoskeletal ultrasound task force and RhMSUS Development Project for musculoskeletal ultrasound certification. In addition, I am responsible for education of the medical students and residents at Boston University Medical Center. I am currently leading research projects on musculoskeletal examination learning, ultrasound use for diagnostic procedures, and ultrasound use for diagnosis of salivary gland disease.
