I am an internist at Internal Medicine Associates in Farmington, Connecticut.
After completion of my residency, I served as Chief Resident at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. I taught multiple key components of the intern ambulatory curriculum that year as well as the quality improvement curriculum for the residents. I also taught the Patient-Doctor II Course for Harvard Medical Students during that year. I am currently the section leader for the Principles of Clinical Medicine 1 Course and one of the teachers within the course as well. I am also a preceptor in the Internal Medicine Residency Program at UCONN in the General Medicine Clinic.

I have done research in the domain of residency program quality improvement. I most recently studied patients lost to follow-up after residents completed their training program in order to improve this process in the residency program. The study was published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine and presented at the Society of General Internal Medicine National Meeting in 2010.
