I am an academic hospitalist and am board certified in internal medicine and hospice and palliative medicine. I am also an attending physician on the General Medicine and Gastrointestinal Oncology Services and provide consultations on the Palliative Medicine Service. I strive to provide high-quality, coordinated care to our patients at MSK while leading a team of residents, interns, and medical students. I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in 2008.
In addition to my clinical work, I am devoted to teaching future doctors. As the Director of Medical Student Education within the Department of Medicine, I work to provide a fulfilling clinical experience for medical students from Weill Cornell Medical College, whether it’s learning how to perform a physical exam or caring for a patient in the hospital. I am also a core faculty member for our Transitional Year Residency Program and provide education and support for our interns. My other academic interests include incorporating evidence-based medicine into individual patient care and clinical decision making in advanced cancer and serious illness.
