Since 2013, I have been a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Family and Community Medicine. In addition to providing the full scope of Family Medicine, I currently serve as the residency program director and the director of maternal-child health for the residency program. As a member of the graduate faculty I have been involved in curriculum oversight and development for various residency rotations. Further, as a member and past Chair of the Clinical Competency Committee (CCC), I have monitored the progress of residents, tracking their abilities to meet the Milestones set forth by the ACGME and ABFM. This role requires me to work in conjunction with the other members of the committee to track evaluations of our 30 residents from both internal and external faculty. I have also served as the director of graduate recruitment since 2015 and have helped to recruit several highly qualified residents to our residency program. Throughout my academic career, I have been a champion for diversity and inclusion, and in 2019 became the Director of Student Diversity and Inclusion for the School of Medicine. I have been passionate about finding ways to address issues of gender and cultural disparities in medicine. Throughout my career I championed for increased diversity during recruitment at the medical school and residency levels by advocating for inclusion of qualified individuals and the performance of holistic reviews of applicants, making specific effort to diminish the impacts of implicit bias during reviews. I have also worked with the School of Medicine’s Assistant Dean for Academic and Multicultural Affairs in training faculty, residents, and students across the University of Maryland, Baltimore at large to recognize and mitigate the impacts of unconscious bias in several, well attended seminars over the last 2 years.
