Description of Educational Expertise
I have been a member of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Residency-In-Training Examination Committee since 2013 and am currently the chair of this committee. At the AAN annual meeting, I speak in multiple resident-focused educational sessions including the neuroanatomy and neuropharmacology courses. I am a member of the AAN Fellowship timeline task force, which is facilitating discussions to standardize the fellowship application process across all subspecialties. I am also a member of the American Association of Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine neuromuscular fellowship oversight committee. I co-host AAN trainee trivia, which shows interesting neurologic cases virtually on a monthly basis. I am the Director of the University of Pennsylvania Neurology Board Review continuing medical education course.
Description of Clinical Expertise
I continue to be fascinated by evaluating and teaching about all subspecialties of neurology. In the outpatient setting, I see general neurology patients both in my own clinic and in resident clinic. I also perform NCS/EMGs. In the inpatient setting, I am the co-division chief for the neurohospitalist division seeing patients on both our general inpatient and consult services. In 2014 and 2015, I was a member of the winning Neurobowl team at the American Academy of Neurology national meeting, which was a competition assessing the ability of the participants to rapidly and accurately diagnose uncommon neurologic diseases. In 2016, I was selected by my peers to the University of Pennsylvania Academy of Master Clinicians. In 2018, I was one of 2 faculty to be named Clinical Practice of the University of Pennsylvania Provider of the Year. For the past 4 years, I have been the course co-director for the American Neurological Association Clinical Logic session, which focuses on how to approach challenging clinical cases. I am the co-author of the textbook, Clinical Decision Making in Neurology, which provides over one hundred algorithms to provide neurologic care based on symptoms or suspected diagnosis.
