Patient Care Bio

I strive for excellence in educating and making a positive impact on the preparation of future Radiologists in a non-threatening environment.



Educational practices in the 21st century require more time for teaching and learning, yet faculty commitment is increasingly diverted to other concerns. I have tried, in this challenging environment, to improve my skills to teach so as to be a role model and to positively impact the preparation of future Radiologists. I have tried to base my teaching on a foundation of the scientific knowledge I have acquired throughout my career and on this foundation base, I have encouraged residents to develop sound clinical judgment, communicate effectively with the referring physicians and the patients we care for. I mentored many residents with research which have been published and presented at numerous national scientific conferences. Above all, I try to teach "we do not look just at bones, tendons and organs, but we treat people".
