I serve as a clinician educator in the Division of Endocrinology and the Department of Medicine. My major interests and activities include teaching and patient care. My focus as a teacher includes educating residents, students, fellows, and other faculty in various topics in the field of thyroid disease. As a clinician, I have a strong interest in thyroid disease and thus have designed my practice to see patients with various thyroid illnesses. I have a weekly thyroid ultrasound clinic and I focus on managing patients with thyroid cancer. On a national level, I am involved in the American Thyroid Association which is an organization for individuals with a strong interest in thyroid illness and disease.
