ABOUT ME:

I came to Colorado for residency training in 1992 and have been here ever since, affiliated with the Department of Family Medicine on some level since then.  After residency graduation I worked for two years at CU Care, a clinic for the uninsured at University Hospital in Denver.  I left CU Care in 1997 to work as a faculty member at the Swedish Family Medicine Residency, which had just graduated its initial class the year before.  I have been at SFMR for the past 13 years; I served as co-Medical Director prior to becoming Residency Director in 2006.  I was awarded the degree of Fellow by the American Academy of Family Physicians in 1998, and prior to becoming residency director was named the Faculty of the Year at Swedish Family Medicine Residency in 1998 and again in 2001.

I love working at SFMR because of the quality people we’ve had in our program over the years.  Our work is important as we train outstanding family physicians to help our country try to provide an adequate physician workforce, and we also care for a large segment of the Denver area’s underserved population.  A lot of my time is now spent performing administrative tasks, but I also get to interact with and teach our residents, which is the best part of my job.  I provide direct patient care about 20% of my time, which I enjoy as well.

RESEARCH INTERESTS:

As a community-based residency program, we are involved in the clinical research networks that are active in the Department of Family Medicine.

PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES:

Being a residency director is very time-consuming, but I am involved in a few other activities as well.  Our program is currently preparing for the implementation of an electronic health record, and I have been the leader in preparatory work thus far.  We are also part of a pilot project with the other family medicine residencies in the state that is attempting to attain certification as a Patient-Centered Medical Home for each program.  This project involves committee work and the implementation of new models of integrative care that we have started to utilize, and will also necessitate the adoption of an electronic health record.  I also serve on Swedish Medical Center’s Peer Review Committee and on The Colorado Health Foundation’s Education Committee.  I also participated in Swedish Medical Center’s Core Measures Improvement Committee until 2009.  I participate in the Colorado Association of Family Medicine Residencies and the Commission on Family Medicine in my role as program director.  In addition I serve on the Board of Directors of Doctors Care, which is an organization that provides health care to the medically indigent population of Arapahoe, Douglas and Elbert counties.  I also regularly volunteer at a local elementary school to teach the Tar Wars program to fifth-graders and have volunteered as Doctor of the Day at the state legislature.
