Academic Interests and Focus

I am very grateful for the opportunity to teach medical students, residents and fellows who rotate through Hennepin health care to learn to care for our very unique patient population. Teaching to me is more than imparting knowledge or instructing a student or resident how to do a procedure. I hope to encourage curiosity and inspire the joy of lifelong learning which is so very necessary in medicine.
