Teaching Summary:

 My primary interest is medical education, particularly the education of medical students in the preclinical curriculum. Our College of Medicine is in the midst of a major revision of the curriculum, and I participate on many of the committees in charge of the revision. I have also helped institute the use of standardized patients in the preclinical curriculum, and this will be a major component of the new curriculum. A major goal of mine is to make the preclinical medical curriculum more relevant, and even more fun, for medical students.
