Professional Background

I chose my career as an academic hospitalist in large because of my passion for bed side teaching. I believe that a hands-on clinical encounter supervised by an expert teacher is worth tens of hours of classroom education.
Supervising medical students and internal medicine residents and discussing their assessment of each patient is my daily teaching routine. I enjoy providing learners a prompt feedback and shaping their clinical and communication skills.
I facilitate problem based learning lectures for first and second year medical students every year and I enjoy bringing refreshing clinical perspective to the group discussion. I also believe that certain case based learning in classroom is very valuable, thus I developed "antibiotics used in the hospital" which became an essential part of IM noon conference curriculum.
As an academic physician I believe in developing expertise in teaching certain topics. For me, I have passion teaching other physicians and health care providers about anemia management and anticoagulation medications. I use this expertise to teach those topics within our institution and in some regional and national conferences.
