I explore the socialization and professionalization processes within health professions education, and often utilize organizational and social-psychological concepts and theories to examine micro and meso phenomena in the education and practice settings of health (pre)professionals. I lead courses in empathy, medical sociology, qualitiative methods, and mental health & well-being. Our efforts with the Center for Interprofessional Development, Education, & Research (CIDER) are focused on cultivating the fundamental traits, behaviors, and attributes essential for developing (and sustaining) interprofessionalism in the healthcare workforce of the future.
