Clinical Interests: Preventative and translational medicine; pediatrics, adolescent and geriatrics care; low risk OB; medical informatics and community education.    

“I chose John Muir Health because it is unique as a new program and its ability to challenge traditional views by implementing innovative and practical training models with a strong feedback system that incorporates STFM research and timely resident-faculty feedback. This is demonstrated by John Muir Health's model to focus on outpatient training by providing a greater number of patient encounters than the average residency. Also, John Muir Health has a diverse demographic and socioeconomic population that is generally hidden from the mainstream Bay Area view which gives residents an indispensable patient perspective within these communities. This creates a learning environment that is well positioned to exploring how to address modern medical healthcare issues.”
