Message from the Associate Director

Welcome to Houston! As a former medical student at McGovern Medical School, I feel confident that all graduates of our residency program are well prepared for any psychiatry setting after graduation due to the diversity of clinical sites and patients. As associate program director, I focus on the physician wellness curriculum and the inpatient psychiatry experience at HCPC to ensure their rotations at this large stand-alone psychiatry hospital provide them with the necessary training to diagnose and manage complex psychiatric conditions. Some of the most rewarding parts of my job are watching residents progress in confidence and clinical skills during their junior years of residency. This position continues to bring gratification in teaching residents and simultaneously learning so much from them.
