Bio Statement

I am an endocrinologist. My clinical and research focus in Endocrinology is on diabetes outcomes and adrenal diseases. Focus of my educational research is improving residents' research experience and incorporating residents in the Clinical Competency Committee processes. My teaching is focused on evidence-based medicine. I coordinate courses and have expertise in building curricula.
