About Me

I am passionate about students understanding the complex health care environment in which we function. By understanding legal, ethical, regulatory, and reimbursement concepts, they know the "rules of the game."  Since these "rules" are constantly changing, I feel students should be able to use a variety of resources to analyze and solve clinical challenges.

Research Interests

My research interests focus in the area of health policy, administration, student learning, and clinical education.
