Areas of Research

Medical Education
As the Research Lead within the Office of Postgraduate Medical Education at the Cumming School of Medicine, my study population of interest is that of resident physicians. I am interested in the areas of transitions from medical school to residency and residency into practice. I am also interested in the teaching and assessment of intrinsic CanMEDS roles, professionalism and ethical issues in residency as well as resident wellness.
Health Services Research
I am interested in how medical education intersects with health services research, especially how resident physicians interact with patients and deliver patient-centered care. Other areas of interest include patient safety and quality improvement in health care.
