1) Growing into the role of an attending hospitalist within a supportive and engaging clinical environment, surrounded by outstanding peers.
2) Conducting medical education scholarship in a rigorous and thoughtful way, through participation in the Teaching Scholars Program.
3) Establishing mentorship relationships to guide me in obtaining both project and career goals, who continue to be my mentors after the Fellowship!
