Biography

My training was in a dual Internal Medicine/Psychiatry residency program. My clinical interests are in the care of patients with both medical and mental health problems. I am interested in building health care systems that integrate primary care and mental health services. Two populations I work with are refugees and people with serious mental illness. My belief is that students and residents in any discipline should be well trained in both medical and behavioral aspects of illness enabling them to have a holistic approach to patient care.
