Email | Bio

What do you do at UNMC?

I am responsible for overseeing LCME accreditation efforts for the COM and the structure/delivery of content to medical students. I also help to manage the anatomic and clinical pathology residency and related fellowships, as well as medical student rotations and shadowing, in the Department of Pathology and Microbiology. Clinically, I am a gastrointestinal and renal pathologist.

Tell us about your educational research interests and teaching role.

One of my focuses is the incorporation of systems-based practice initiatives into medical and resident education. Additionally, I am also passionate about the adoption of novel electronic tools to improve educational workflow and assessment.

What is one of your favorite/memorable teaching moments?

Trying to explain to a High School Alliance student why their blood type was different that what would be expected based on what the student knew about their parents-- it was an interesting conversation to say the least!

What do you see as the biggest benefit to being a member of the IAE?

Connecting with other educators outside of the College of Medicine.

What's something about you that not many people know?

I was in the Cornhusker Marching Band and got to perform at the 1995 National Championship game.
