Following the completion of medical school and Pediatrics residency at the University of Pittsburgh, and Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania, I came to Yale where I am an Associate Professor on the Clinician-Educator track in the Division of Perinatal Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics. I am dedicated the education and training of fellows in the department, as the Director of Fellowships as well as the Associate Program Director for the Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Training Program. I am also deeply committed to the education of trainees and medical staff in a variety of programs, many of which are simulation-based and interprofessional. Due to my desire to enhance my knowledge and skills as an educator, I completed a master's degree in Medical Education through the University of Cincinnati, the LEAD program through the Association of Pediatric Program Directors, and am a Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator through the Society of Simulation in Healthcare. I am interested in educational research, particularly as it applies to procedural training, assessment of competency in the simulated and clinical environments, and curriculum development.
