I am the Section Chief for Quality Medicine at the Atlanta VAMC. In that role I lead clinical quality improvement initiatives for Medical Service. I also mentor the Internal Medicine Chief Resident for Quality and Patient Safety and work collaboratively to develop and implement graduate medical education training in quality improvement. I am leading the development of a new Specialty Care Education Center of Excellence in Cognitive Disorders at the Atlanta VAMC. The goal of this three-year initiative is to foster transformation of clinical education and patient care by preparing graduates of health professional schools and programs to work in and lead patient centered interprofessional teams providing specialty care in the setting of coordinated longitudinal primary care. My role as faculty in Emory University School of Medicine focuses upon the development and implementation of undergraduate, graduate, and interprofessional training in quality improvement. My clinical practice is on the inpatient General Medicine Services at the Atlanta VA Medical Center.
