      I work clinically at San Francisco General Hospital Children's Health Center Urgent Care and inpatient ward, where I provide direct patient care as well as supervise the care provided by the UCSF/SFGH Pediatric, Family and Community Medicine, and Emergency Medicine residents. I am the Associate Medical Director of Urgent and Subspecialty Care at the SFGH Children's Health Center. In this role, I am responsible for day-to-day management of urgent and subspecialty care clinics, clinic protocol development, and quality improvement measures.

      In addition to on-the-fly teaching performed during my clinical activities, I hold a special interest in how simulation-based medical education can supplement procedural education. To that end, I am the Co-Director of the Pediatric Residency Simulation Curriculum at the Kanbar Center for Simulation, Clinical Skills and Telemedicine Education. In this role, I am responsible for the curricular development, coordination, and implementation of the pediatric resident simulation-based procedure curriculum. I additionally authored the UCSF Pediatric Emergency Medicine Procedures Manual, which is now available on AgileMD. I am participating in the 2015-2016 Teaching Scholars Program in order to hone my teaching skills and to work on an educational research project.

      I am the Co-Founder and Clinical Champion of the San Francisco General Hospital Health Advocates, a de novo program started in the Children's Health Center, that utilizes volunteers to standardize social needs screening and resource connections within a clinical visit.
