M.D., Assistant Professor, Division Chief of Rheumatology
My approach to teaching is to encourage you to approach rheumatologic problems from a systemic perspective. In other words, I will help you to develop skills in understanding and correlating the pathophysiology of disease with the clinical manifestations of rheumatologic problems. Emphasis on critical thinking is given a premium.Through this approach you will be in the position to analyze the current state of knowledge in rheumatology and be prepared to assess the usefulness of future developments. I look forward to the exchange of ideas with budding rheumatologists and recognize the positive effect it has on my own continued development.
