Areas of Research
The primary focus of my research is related to the scholarship of teaching and learning, with a special interest in teaching/learning processes and outcomes. My research agenda also includes curricular issues, particularly as related to heath promotion, gerontology, and clinical education. I have additional research interests in qualitative research, screening for medical referral, and use of clinical outcomes measures.
