I am a 2003 graduate of the School of Medicine and since then I have been constantly following the progress the school has made over the past several years. I have participated in informational seminars to prospective students and I have really enjoyed speaking on behalf of the Ross community. I wish to continue to be an active part of the School and through alumni relations I am hoping to continue to help the University grow. I completed my residency in Internal Medicine at The Ohio State University College of Medicine and then did a year of Pulmonary Critical Care Medicine at Ohio State. Ultimately, I decided that was not the career choice I wanted and since then have been a Hospitalist. I was on faculty at the College of Medicine as an Assistant Professor for several years before moving back home to Cleveland 2 months ago. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Medicine at University Hospitals of Cleveland, Case Medical Center and School of Medicine. I am a hospitalist with the Division of Hematology and Oncology and have been recruited to help them a new hospitalist group in their new free standing cancer center.
