Gastroenterology Fellow

Biographical Info

Education History
Medical School: University of Illinois at Chicago
Residency: Washington University in St Louis

Research Interest:
Quality Improvement, Process Improvement, Operations

Clinical Interest:
Upper GI pathology, Motility, Nutrition, Interventional GI

Career Path:
I plan to become a general gastroenterologist with a focus on quality improvement, healthcare delivery and efficacy within the GI field.  Long term, I’d plan to become a thought leader in GI implementation science and quality, both systemwide and nationally.

Why did you choose UIC for fellowship:
The immediate hands-on approach to learning both endoscopy and clinical GI was appealing to me as I learn best by doing.  There is always someone to ask for guidance but we are also allowed in most situations to take the lead.  Additionally, I went to UIC for undergrad, med school and my MBA and so it felt comfortable to come back here.  Finally, I am originally from the Chicagoland area and my family (and wife’s family) all live nearby.
