I am currently Director of Client Services for 'iQueue for Beds' Product at LeanTaaS. I am also a visiting Associate Professor of Medicine at UCSF where I attend on our Internal Medicine Inpatient Teaching Service and provide career mentorship to our trainees. Prior to this role, I was at UCSF, as an assistant clinical professor and an academic hospitalist at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital (ZSFG) where I directed clinical operations for the Division of Hospital Medicine, and oversee our Faculty Inpatient Services. I was also a Physician Advisor for Clinical Documentation & Integrity. I trained residents, faculty, and staff in social determinants of health, relationship centered communication, medical disclosure and am certified in Lean Healthcare Management. My interests include healthcare innovations and clinical operations. Other areas of interest include: patient safety/quality improvement in hospital systems through application of Lean Principles, relationship centered communication, and physician well-being.
I earned my Bachelors in Neuroscience and Systems from MIT. I went on to gain expertise in healthcare disparities, ethics, statistics at the Institute for Health Policy at Mass General Hospital prior to receiving my medical degree from University of Vermont. Thereafter, I moved to the west coast where I finished my Internal Medicine Residency at Scripps Green Hospital/Clinic in La Jolla, CA followed by a year as Chief Resident for the program. I then joined UCSD faculty as an academic hospitalist before ending up in the Bay Area at UCSF.
