Biography

I direct the first Master Course for first year medical students entitled Introduction to the Profession. I am interested in early professional identification; stories of the profession, patients, New Haven and ourselves; power relationships in health care; and improving the learning environment. I was a junior high school English teacher before medical school and am interested in the intersection of the humanities with medicine. My research interests are in these areas and in ways to improve the medical student experience.
