With more than 25 years experience as a clinical PA, Liz joined the Yale Physician Associate Program as the Director of Didactic Education in 2013. Her interests are improving access to health care in the medically underserved, a path that has led her to practice mainly in the primary care setting. She currently serves as a co-medical director of HAVEN, a free clinic supported and run by the student from the YSM, YSN and the Yale Physician Associate Program. Additionally she volunteers as an attending at this clinic. Her pedagogical interests include the clinical decision-making, development of professionalism, social justice and LBGT health disparities. At Yale School of Medicine, she is an Affiliated Faculty in the Program in Addiction Medicine. Additionally she is the Connecticut Association of PA Board representative at HAVEN (Health Assistance InterVention Education Network), and nationally she serves as a facilitator for the Physician Assistant Education Association Faculty Skills workshops.
