In recent years, my clinical interests have included the treatment of infectious diseases in the emergency department, trauma management, emergency medicine education and patient satisfaction. Through my research, I focus on the ED treatment of infections, such as pneumonia and respiratory infections as well as medical education research.
I have been on the Ohio State Medical Center faculty for several decades. I'm a professor of emergency medicine and internal medicine for The Ohio State University College of Medicine. I'm also the program director of the Emergency Medicine Internal Medicine Residency Program and the vice chair of education for the Department of Emergency Medicine. From 1990 to 2010, I served as the program director for the Emergency Medicine Categorical Program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
I serve on a number of committees in our Department of Emergency Medicine, the College of Medicine and the medical center along with being an active member in national organizations such as SAEM (in which I serve as chair of the SAEM Medical Education Research Interest Group, the Council of Residency Directors (CORD) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) to name a few.
During my career, I have lectured as a visiting professor both regionally and nationally on topics such as respiratory infection, case studies of infectious emergencies, recognizing and reducing cognitive errors in medicine and applying leadership literature to emergency medicine.
I received my medical degree from the Indiana University School of Medicine. After that, I completed my internal medicine residency at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics and then completed an emergency medicine residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin serving as chief resident during my final year.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
