I have been a practicing Emergency/Trauma radiologist since my arrival at Yale in 1996. I have been teaching Health Policy and Health Care Leadership to Yale undergraduates, undergraduate medical, graduate, and graduate medical students since 1998, when I also founded the MD/MBA program, a program that I continue to direct. In 2003, I co-founded the Executive MBA Program at Yale, which has now expanded beyond its health care roots. Since 2011, I have been the program director of the Health Care Management Program at the Yale School of Public Health. Additionally, since 2020, I have been the director of clinical leadership development for the Yale-New Haven Health System, providing coaching and support to many of our emerging physician leaders.

This is all to say that I love teaching, mentoring, and supporting the career development of students in their pursuit of health care excellence. Through my role in the MD/MBA system, my teaching in the YSM Capstone course, and my two decades of service on the YSM admissions committee, I have been fortunate to play a small role in the educational experience and career decision making of many of our YSM alumni, while they were students.

I look forward to getting to know the students I coach and helping them become the best version of themselves—encouraging scholastic excellence, while developing into the compassionate, non-judgmental, patient-centered leaders that the world needs.
