My Role with Students and Residents at Long School of Medicine

Each year, I mentor 2 medical students as they journey through their first and second year of medical school and facilitate patient encounters for them.  I teach students and residents when they rotate on the UH palliative care service.  Also, I teach pharmacology classes related to palliative care to 4th year medical students.
