I am an associate program director for the general surgery residency at Boston Medical Center. Alongside my busy clinical practice and administrative work, I oversee and conduct research in collaboration with peers, residents, and medical students. My research expertise is primarily in surgical/medical education and I have completed three research fellowships to gain relevant experiences: a Surgical Education Research Fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), a Medical Education Research Fellowship at The Academy at Harvard Medical School, and the Arthur Tracy Cabot Fellowship at BWH’s Center for Surgery and Public Health. I have also earned a Master’s in Health Professions Education (MHPE).
I bring the perspective of an early career faculty member to mentoring, understanding the need to strike a balance when building a clinical practice, ramping up a research program, and attending to family obligations and self-care all come together.
