How long have you been a member of AAIM?

I joined AAIM in the spring of 2017. At the time, I was a senior resident at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and rising chief resident. I joined AAIM in advance of the Spring 2017 APDIM Chief Residents conference in Baltimore, which my program’s educational leadership team attended as a group.

What is your favorite part of your job?

I am lucky because my clinical position is almost entirely a supervisory role over residents and students, both inpatient and outpatient. The best part of my job is teaching, mentoring, and shaping the minds of learners as they approach complex patient problems. I get fulfillment from sharing my love of the cognitive parts of medicine and discussing challenging clinical scenarios. When it comes to resident education in primary care, I find one of the biggest challenges keeping up with the literature and trying to stay a step ahead of what the residents are learning from our subspecialists; I love being challenged to learn more, adapt my educational content, and strive to be a model of a generalist’s breadth of knowledge.
