I received my training in the dynamic and challenging emergency department at Bellevue Hospital in NYC. The fast pace of the ED afforded me the opportunity to create a strong foundation for my practice of emergency medicine and confirmed my decision to pursue an academic career; I wanted to expand EM's boundaries, and increase my understanding of the human condition. I learned from a dedicated faculty who valued patient advocacy and that quality of care comes not only from applying technical skills but also from listening to the patient and every stakeholder.
During my Medical toxicology fellowship, I continued to develop a real love for teaching, both at bedside and formal lectures; developing, initiating, and completing research; and writing journal articles and chapters.
Now, years after I first stepped into an ED, I am still excited to come to work everyday.
My research interests include both Emergency medicine and Medical toxicology topics.
