Fellowship in Ultrasound, Specialized Training
My clinical interests include using Point-of-care ultrasound to communicate and evaluate hospitalized patients. Point-of-care ultrasound is the use of bedside non-invasive ultrasound imaging technology to visualize the internal anatomy.
My care philosophy is that every patient interaction should engage the patient at the center of the process, so that they leave each encounter having gained further understanding of their experience in the hospital.
I am passionate about integrating point-of-care ultrasound into Hospital Medicine to better communicate and care for patients. I think teaching trainees how to engage with patients where they are at, and communicate so patients truly understand what is happening during their hospital experience is my number one job as a physician educator.
My volunteer efforts are focused on protecting our environment and working for the reversal of anthropomorphic climate change for the better health of everyone.
