I received my MD degree from Duke University and completed my residency training in Internal Medicne and my fellowship training in Nephrology and Hypertension at Yale new Haven Hospital/Yale School of Medicine. My patient care is in both the inpatient setting at Yale New Haven Hospital and in the outpatient setting at the Adult Primary Care Center where I oversee a hypertension referral clinic, precept residents, and provide direct patient care. My entire career has been at Yale where I have served as Program Director of our Primary Care Internal Medicine Residency for 24 years, as Program Director of our Combined Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program for 10 years and as Vice Chair for Education in the Department of Medicine for 9 years. In 2016 I was appointed Associate Dean and Director of Graduate Medicine Education. My research interest is in hypertension education, management and quality improvement and in medical education.
