My contributions to education and research have focused on the organization and delivery of: (1) health-related services for vulnerable populations, and, (2) physician 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 physicians to assess trainees and programs and to develop medical education curriculum.
