Associate Professor, General & Hospital Medicine

Professional Background

I am a staff member in the department of Internal Medicine, Division of General and Geriatric Medicine, spending my clinical time as an academic hospitalist, supervising and teaching groups of residents and medical students in the care of hospitalized patients. Additionally, I serve as a medical director, in partnership with The University of Kansas Hospital, in the utilization of health information technology, including the electronic medical record, and in quality improvement of patient care through national initiatives such as the Joint Commission of Medicare and Medicaid Core Measures, which are disease-specific diagnoses with management measures known to improve patient outcomes. I also served as the medical director of an in-patient heart-monitored medical unit of the hospital. My broad experience in these areas allow me to extend that expertise to residents and medical students.
