Personal profile

Area of Expertise

I administer the 2nd year of medical school. Our curriculum is based upon principles of cognitive sciences and its implementation. One facet of my academic life that is not adequately addressed by these metrics is the reality that I have a quasi-administrative role. I am Administrative Course Director for 8 of the 9 Systems courses in Year 2 of the TCOM medical school and for one course in Year 1 of the TCOM medical school. In this capacity, I organize those courses, work closely with faculty (including reviewing classroom activities), edit examinations, etc. In addition, I facilitate the interaction between Systems and components of the Medical Practice course. I engage in community service concerning a special emphasis on recovery from alcohol and substance abuse problems. I coordinate efforts between local community members and the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, CA, for the purpose of allowing a group of our students (with 2 accompanying faculty) to participate for one week in the activities of a world-class recovery center.
