I am board certified in both anesthesiology and clinical informatics. I trained at the Massachusetts General Hospital and currently practice at Vanderbilt University, in Nashville, Tennessee where I am a the Joseph A. Johnson, Jr. Distinguished Leadership Professor of Anesthesiology, Surgery, Biomedical Informatics and Health Policy.
Since my first year of medical school, I have been committed to working hard to advance the interests of our patients, our practices, and the field of medicine through advocacy, teaching, and the conduct of research. Although we face a number of challenges across our healthcare delivery system, I see a bright future for American medicine.
In 2014, I was elected to the American Medical Association Board of Trustees, where I have the great honor and privilege of serving as the voice of all physicians across our great nation.
