R e s e a r c h   I n t e r e s t s
My research is in Medical Education. I study the link between Arts and Humanities and learning in medical training and beyond.  In addition, I have examined the role for art-making in shaping wellness and professional identity in medical students. I am also studying the role of elective selection and it’s link to Residency match success.  My previous  research interests have included Faculty Development, Admissions and International Medical Education. I have ongoing scholarly connections with Patan Academy of Health Sciences in Kathmandu Nepal.
