Preventative Health, Preoperative Medicine and Chronic Disease Management

In the classroom I teach a small group of first year medical and dental students the basics of clinical medicine and how to translate their basic science knowledge to the clinical environment.


In the clinic I precept internal medicine residents during their continuity clinic in ambulatory medicine at UConn Health.  I also run a preoperative clinic where I teach internal medicine and orthopedic trainees about preoperative consultation in the outpatient setting.  In my own primary care practice I teach medical students as part of their three year continuity clinic experience.
