The majority of my scholarly activity has been in the context of teaching and evaluating 3rd year medical students in the Family Medicine clerkship. This has included work on faculty evaluations, teaching communication skills, using standardized patient experiences and most recently, work in an interprofessional teaching clinic.

I am also heavily involved in interprofessional teaching and practice and have presented both on the learning aspect for students of multiple disciplines as well as the patient perceptions of their care.
