I joined the Ohio State faculty in 1994 and have since been involved with residency education and administration. Initially serving as associate residency director in the Department of Emergency Medicine, my areas of interest stemmed from resident didactic education and clinical bedside teaching. In 1998, I became co-residency director along with Dan Marti and assumed the residency director position in 2010. My contributions to the program have included developing a small group forum for the didactic sessions as well as a monthly skills lab curriculum.
I received The Ohio State University College of Medicine Department of Emergency Medicine Teacher of the Year Award in 2005 and the Courage to Teach Award in 2010. My current areas of interest and research include individualized residency education, testing preparation, and clinical research in body mass index in relation to emergency department length of stay and utilization.
I have been active on the national level in the past few decades, spreading my thoughts on emergency medicine practices. I'm a national lecturer for American College of Emergency Physicians, specializing in lifelong learning and self-assessment. In addition to that, I have been an American Board of Emergency Medicine Oral Examiner since 2001 and an ABEM item writer since 2010.
I'm a 1990 graduate of Case Western University's College of Medicine. After earning my medical degree, I completed a residency in emergency medicine in 1994 at the University of Cincinnati, serving as chief resident from 1993-1994.

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.
