Research Summary:

Although I do not have an official research assignment, I do support this UF mission. I mentor master’s students in the School of Physician Assistant Studies in their capstone projects. This includes the selection of a clinical question, advising on the critique of literature, and mentoring students on the summary and synthesis of their topic of interest. These projects have led to abstracts and poster presentations. I have participated in clinical research as a safety monitor and conducted an educational intervention study that led to a peer-reviewed publication. Before 2014, my expertise was clinically based, and led to producing patient-based case reports for abstracts and publications. After 2014, my focus changed to being a lecturer, course director, and curricular chair. Following a period of methodology learning, I was able to produce scholarly work in the form of a book chapter on teaching with humility and multiple national presentations on entrustable professional activities (EPAs).
