I have extensive teaching experience using a variety of formats (on-campus, online, co-taught, and study abroad). I am passionate about teaching and received the Albany Medical College SOSA Academy of Medicine New Teacher Award for outstanding teaching. I am committed to mentorship and have published papers with undergraduate, graduate, and medical students as well as postdoctoral fellows.
I am the Associate Director of Graduate Studies for the Alden March Bioethics Institute (AMBI). For AMBI, I teach bioethics classes to the master’s and doctoral bioethics students, including Reproductive Ethics, Philosophical Foundations in Bioethics, and Classic Cases in Bioethics. I serve as an advisor for bioethics master’s and doctoral projects, medical student bioethics honors projects and independent studies, and public health graduate student research internships. I am also a primary mentor for our clinical ethics fellows, guiding their development as clinical ethics consultants, scholars, instructors, and bioethics professionals.
Additionally, I am active in bioethics education for clinical students, faculty, and staff. I am the Course Director for Health, Care and Society, which is a mandatory two year-long bioethics and medical humanities class for all medical students (approximately 140 students per year). I also regularly give lectures and lead small group discussion for the medical students, physician assistant students, OBGYN residents, pre-healthcare professional high school students, and hospital staff. I am a dynamic speaker, and my energy for and knowledge of the material shines through in my talks and interactive teaching sessions.
