Focus of Work
I am a pediatric emergency medicine practitioner and educator who began my work at Northwestern and Lurie Children's in 2001, having completed residency and fellowship at Johns Hopkins Hospital. I am the Director of the founder and Director of the kidSTAR Medical Education Program. I am actively involved in the Society for SImulation In Healthcare and the INSPIRE pediatric simulation-based education consortium.
I am interested in the development of graduate education curricula based on robust assessment programs. I am particularly focused on communicating to peers about current validity frameworks and how this applies to the development of assessments. I am actively involved in the divisional fellowship program, teaching a weekly research curriculum. I am also an associate director within the Office of Faculty Program in the Department of Pediatrics.
