Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Our medical education research group is developing and validating the best educational practices to train competent, compassionate, and ethical physicians and physician-scientists. We are studying the use of standardized patients and other modalities to improve clinical skill training and reasoning. We are interested in applying the rigor of clinical investigation to education research.

My areas of clinical interest in endocrinology include disorders of the pituitary, thyroid, and gonad.
