My interest lies in the education of medical students to enable them to be able to work together in multidisciplinary teams. I want students to be competent in providing continuous, comprehensive, cost effective, ethical, family oriented care within a rapidly changing health system to people living in a variety of settings, especially urban underserved people, and within the context of their communities. I strongly believe in preventive care and that medical students be exposed to this in order to improve the basic health of our entire population. This would include studies of health promotion, disease prevention, disease treatment, as well as the process of health professions education and the organization and delivery of health care.
