I am a surgical resident at BWH and a first year Clinical Informatics Fellow at Partners Healthcare. I attended University of Virginia for my undergraduate studies and Johns Hopkins Medical School where I spent one year in the Department of Surgery to conduct health services and surgical outcomes research. I have been involved in the EPIC integration as a resident and took an interest in improving surgical care delivery with health information technology. I am now taking two years off to complete a clinical informatics fellowship. Through the Master’s program, I hope to learn more about data extraction and utilization from EHR for research and  standardization of surgical care delivery using health information technology.
