My academic emphasis is medical education and curriculum development for a variety of settings and different levels of learners.  As a member of the Section of Academic General Pediatrics (AGP) and as a preceptor for Texas Children’s Hospital Primary Care Practice at Palm Center, my primary clinical  responsibility is to model and teach general pediatric skills.  Paramount to my goals is to provide competent and compassionate patient care and to demonstrate this to learners.  My  clinical time is spent with pediatric residents and students as we work to provide ongoing  care for the Texas Children’s Hospital Primary Care Practice at Palm Center patients.  I believe in advocating for the needs of patients and I practice quality improvement to improve existing process.
