About

Bio

I am an anesthesiologist who trained at university of Massachusetts and Yale University; I subsequently worked as an attending at Yale Medical School and for the past 16 years I have worked at the Brown University Medical School in the departments of surgery and Anesthesiology. I am presently pursuing a career in consulting. I have always enjoyed teaching and answering questions. At the present time I am attempting to consult for investment bankers, venture capitalists in the life sciences industry. I insist on staying abreast of the latest developments in my specialty so I enjoy forums such as this.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
