WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a family medicine doctor, I have the privilege of caring for patients and families of diverse ages and backgrounds. I strive to provide personalized, empathic, and competent care, and I view the doctor-patient relationship as an alliance in which we work together and learn from one another. I work hard to remain updated on current best practices and guidelines while also respecting patient autonomy and attending to the challenges that inhibit the easy navigation of the healthcare system. Additionally, I have to great honor of teaching medical and physician assistant students and family medicine residents, and I view the education of our next generation of medical providers as a top priority. Finally, my research focuses on how medical learners and providers experience the emotion of shame, and I strive to create safe, shame-free learning and clinical environments for learners and patients alike.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My primary academic interest focuses on how medical learners experience self-conscious emotion (shame, guilt, and pride) as they progress through medical training. My research to date has focused on understanding and characterizing medical residents' experiences of shame, and our findings suggest that major shame events can be intense, debilitating experiences that can lead to a host of negative outcomes and may be influenced by the learning environment and personal characteristics such as perfectionism. My future research plans, which I hope to pursue through a Ph.D. program, seek to 1) characterize shame experiences across the continuum of medical education, focusing on how changes in context influence the shame experiences of medical students, residents, and practicing physicians, and 2) build a theory of shame resilience in medical learners and providers.
