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.
