I am a clinician-teacher in the Department of Medicine and a staff physician in Internal Medicine at St Michael’s Hospital, Unity Health Toronto. I have worked with learners at all levels on the frontlines and also served as the Internal Medicine clerkship site co-director and the General Internal Medicine Fellowship site director at my hospital. In these roles, my goal has been to help learners thrive, and not just survive, through their training. Training to become a physician is challenging in so many ways, and we have a responsibility to ensure that you have support and guidance to become the best versions of yourselves. If you feel unsettled by something that you have experienced or witnessed, I am here for you to unpack it and determine next best steps. I will earn your trust and work hard to be your advocate. Please feel free to contact me anytime!
In my role as Associate Dean, Postgraduate Medical Education I oversee all aspects of resident and fellow education in the Temerty Faculty of Medicine. I have been in this role for almost 10 years, and before that have had numerous hospital and education leadership roles, including an 8 year period as a residency program director and a 10 year period as a hospital department chief. I have had a career-long academic focus on medical education and am committed to implementing system-wide changes to improve the learning environment for each and every learner. Through our leading work on Best Practices in Application and Selection (BPAS), Voice of The Resident and Fellows (VoTR/VoTF) and scholarly program evaluation, I seek to ensure that all PGME efforts are aligned to support Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity in the Faculty and that your learning environment is the best it can possibly be.
