Being a physician is an enormous privilege. Patients trust us to practice up-to-date, evidence-based medicine. But the humanistic skills — listening, showing empathy, understanding the patient's point of view — are also key to effectively caring for our patients. I am passionate about teaching and finding ways to convey the excitement and challenge of clinical medicine to students and residents. I strive to convey the importance of both the science and the art of medicine.
