I am a board-certified specialist in internal medicine who joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2010. I am an academic hospitalist — a physician who specializes in the comprehensive care of patients while they are in the hospital. I currently focus on the care of patients with gastrointestinal malignancies and am responsible for coordinating their clinical care and management from their admission to the inpatient medical ward until they leave the hospital. I am also interested in hospital quality initiatives as well as palliative care and hospice medicine..
In addition to my clinical work, I have a strong interest in the education of young physicians and am involved in teaching both medical students and residents. I currently serve as associate director of the residency program for rotating house staff, working closely with the program director and the chief resident to provide exemplary training of our transitional-year interns and rotating house staff.
