Why I Treat Children

I always knew I wanted to care for children during my medical career, and when I was a third-year medical student one of the attending physicians said something to me that resonated and solidified this decision. I was talking about being on call and he told me to think about the answer to the following question: ""When you are on call/work at night, you will be called about patients all night long. If you are resting/sleeping, what type of patient would you jump out of bed for, ready and excited to care for them?"" For me, that answer was simple: CHILDREN! I still think about this conversation every night when I’m driving to the pediatric emergency department for an overnight shift. 

What I'm Passionate About

I am passionate about patient care, education and evidence-based care. I think about patient care — care at the bedside with patient and family — as the grassroots aspect of medicine.  This is the opportunity to work side-by-side with patients and families to improve care and outcomes. I’ve been blessed with wonderful educational opportunities and teachers during my medical career and I hope to continue this legacy of education with students, residents, fellows and young attending physicians. I embrace the responsibility of teaching both at the bedside and in more formal settings, and I hope to add enthusiasm, interaction and fun to these sessions. Evidence-based medicine (an approach to the practice of medicine intended to make decision-making the best it can be by emphasizing the use of evidence from well-designed and well-conducted research) is so important in the care of patients. We can help accomplish this by being aware of the literature and contributing to this body of evidence — working as a team, identifying problems and doing our best to find solutions.

How I Try to Make A Difference

Every patient interaction, every consult (when, by request of one physician, another physician reviews a child’s medical history, examines the child, and makes recommendations on care and treatment) and every discussion with a colleague is an opportunity to make a positive difference in patient care. I also think that these conversations with colleagues are an opportunity to learn and get to know one another better. These daily conversations, which build comradery and teamwork, provide the framework to make positive differences in patient care and pediatric medicine.

Research Activities

My research activities include medical simulation (educational activities that practice or rehearse situations and care decisions seen in real-life clinical care), specifically, finding ways to enhance learning/retention of pediatric advanced life support skills in high-acuity (a child who is very sick or injured, and needs intense, one-on-one care), low-frequency events.
