Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility
Through my role, I strive to make medical education accessible to learners with a variety of needs - particularly those with neurodivergence and/or disabilities. By creating education spaces that are accessible to more diverse groups of people we will increase the breadth of people who are able to become clinicians, which will in turn improve patient care. I am also passionate about creating and fostering psychologically spaces for learners at all levels.

Excellence in Education Scholarship Mentoring
Available to Mentor as: (Review Mentor Role Definitions)
Through my work as Director of the Education Evaluation Core I mentor faculty, fellows, residents and students who are interested in medical education research. Specifically, I provide support around hypothesis and research question development, study design, data collection and analysis, and preparing manuscripts for publication. I am always happy to meet with clinician educators at any level to discuss all things research related, on a regular or ad hoc basis.
