Internal Medicine

As a hospitalist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, I care for people who have been admitted to the hospital for medical issues, such as side effects of their chemotherapy, oncologic emergencies, or other acute medical complications, like infection, organ failure, or pain. I am also a part of the inpatient medical team who cares for people with head and neck cancer, melanoma, or sarcoma. I focus on providing compassionate, patient-centered care by collaborating with my patients when making complicated medical decisions and discussing their overall care plan. I also work closely with my patients’ outpatient oncologists and their clinic staff to ensure safe transitions of care when they leave the hospital and to maintain an open line of communication with their oncology care team. Together, we strive to find the best solution to the unique medical and social challenges faced by our patients.

In addition to my clinical work, I am a strong advocate for social justice. My interests include furthering the medical education of healthcare providers and medical trainees in resource-limited settings across the globe, focusing on the integration of technology and simulation-based learning models. My work has extended from volunteering in clinics in France and Ecuador to researching the effectiveness of simulation-based teaching modalities in Brazil.
