Education and Training

Undergraduate:  George Washington University

Medical School:  George Washington University


I completed my undergraduate and medical school education at George Washington University. I then completed my Emergency Medicine residency at University of Maryland Medical Center. After residency, I completed a chief year and Ultrasound fellowship at University of Maryland as well. My passion for emergency medicine started prior to medical school, when I was involved in EMS as an EMT and also volunteered for the Fire Department. Prehospital emergency medicine has remained one of my interests as well as ultrasound, critical care and teaching.
