Clinical Interest

As the medical training environment continues to evolve, I am interested in the use of educational theory, adult-learning techniques, simulation, and outcomes-based improvements as applied to our traditional process-based residency programs.  Further, as graduate medical educational strategies (supervision, duty-hour, requirements) change, I seek to document the success or failure of particular interventions.
