Personal Statement

My interests are a combination of clinical care and the medical education of our neonatology fellows, pediatric residents, and Baylor College of Medicine students, Neonatal Nurse Practitioners. Clinical research also has a central role in all that we do and I am attempting to integrate more time into the pursuit of the many clinical questions that enter our clinical care and education.
