Caring compassionately for others requires a lifetime commitment to self-development that just begins at graduation.
The future of primary care medicine will be directed by teams

models for the care of others. The
education of our future caregivers is so important to me. You are the legacy that will continue our
work and pass it on to the next generation!

care to the underserved. I also was an anatomy adjunct professor at NYU, where I developed a procedure lab including a

learning about the European EMS and emergency care systems and instructing
residents in procedure skills. I have been a guest lecturer for the Emergency
Medicine Residency Program of Morristown Medical Center, the Cornell/Columbia Emergency
Medicine Program and the Bellevue/NYU Emergency Medicine Program. I have run difficult airway procedure labs

I have also published two papers concerning the use of anatomic models
