I am board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, American Board of Pediatrics and a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. As Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education, I oversee all medical student programs, residency and fellowship programs, graduate student programs, and continuing education at the University of Kentucky. My research interests are outcomes of medical education, both learner outcomes and patient outcomes when cared for by learners.
