Biography

My contributions to education and research have focused on the organization and delivery of: (1) health-related services for vulnerable populations, and, (2) physician/health-professional training. After having done work in national and international evaluation of HIV/AIDS-related programs and mental health service research, a more recent component of my career has involved the application of my skills in medical education. In this area, most of my work has focused on working with medical education faculty in assessing trainees and training programs.

At the Yale School of Medicine, I focus on evaluation of the medical education curriculum and its component parts; training faculty, house staff, and students in giving and receiving feedback as part of teaching and learning; improving systems for assessing educators towards enhancement of teaching and faculty success; and consulting to faculty in evaluation approaches that contribute to scholarly work. I am also involved in incorporating LGBTQI-health related topics into the medical school curriculum and serve on the Dean's Council for LGBTQI Affairs. For select graduate medical education programs, I work towards gathering and analyzing qualitative data that contribute to internal review of training programs.
