Professor and Vice Chair for Research
I believe that we are all part of a pyramid standing on each other to reach ever higher in our understanding. I believe that at this point in my career I am in the middle of that pyramid. Many have helped to raise me higher and I like to help those who will come next have a firm footing to stand on. I believe in honesty and will always offer that but I am sometimes too blunt. I like everyone else am a work in progress and am juggling many commitments. I have mentored medical students, graduate students, residents, and junior faculty; many of those have developed into long standing relationships and some have faded away as people move on to their next phase.
