Academic Bio

I am currently a primary care provider at the George E. Wahlen VA Medical Center. I am also the Chief of the General Internal Medicine section and an Assistant Professor at the University of Utah. I am involved in patient care delivery, resident supervision, and clinical program development on a daily basis. My special interests are in improvement of health care delivery and assessment of clinical outcomes. These efforts have principally focused on hypertension and cardiovascular risk management. I am currently the lead team member for the implementation of the Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) model at our facility and also the physician leader for implementation for VISN 19 (Rocky Mountain Network).
