About

Bio

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Utah, Department of Pediatrics, in the Inpatient Medicine Division. I practice as a pediatric hospitalist at Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City. My time is equally divided between clinical care of hospitalized children and education of residents and medical students. My particular interests lie in the use of Electronic Health Records and other technology to improve patient care. I also serve on the Pharmacy and Therapeutics committee at my hospital. In the community I play the French Horn in a local orchestra and I act as the Personnel Manager for that orchestra.

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.
