        Biographical Information

        I deeply appreciate the privilege of being a teacher and a clinician. I spent about 10 years in the private practice of family medicine before returning to the academic environment to teach and practice. My teaching reflects my years in practice, and my practice reflects my style as a teacher. Myparticular practice and interests include adolescent medicine and Women's Health, and primary care dermatology.I enjoy the challenge of teaching evidence-basedmedicine to our residents.

        A story is told that the mother of a future Nobel prize winner greeted him upon his return from school with the question 'So, did you ask a good question today?' To practice medicine as science requires us to recognize that the complexity of the human organism causes us to have far more questions than we have answers. Nonetheless, our patients ask us to translate uncertainty into recommendation, and to help them to make their own informed choices. As a teacher, I push our residents and students to examine closely what they 'know', and to explore rigorously the 'evidence'. Physicians have much to learn from being critical readers,yet even more to learn from their patients' and their families' lives.

        I aman Associate Editor for Domino's 5 Minute Clinical Consult. Icompleted a study investigating the predictors and prevalence of Chlamydia trachomatis infection in the college population of Worcester. I have developed software and applications for teaching using the Palm OS PDA.
