In addition to my role as an Associate Program Director for the residency, I also work with residents on the inpatient stroke service and as one of the attendings in the resident continuity clinic. I have a strong interest in medical education, which is something that is shared among the teaching faculty.

I truly believe that you will be getting a well-rounded experience in your training as you will have exposure to multiple subspecialties, both in the clinical and research settings.

Thank you for your interest in the Duke Neurology Residency Program. As the associate program director, I am happy to support the program director and the residents. I focus on enhancing outpatient rotations and collaborating with the program leadership and trainees on curriculum design and educational support. Our residency is an excellent place to train, and we partner with our residents and colleagues to continually optimize our program. Our goal is to provide outstanding training that is personalized towards your individual goals.

In addition to serving as the APD, I am a core member of the Educate the Educator series for our department. I am involved in several educational efforts outside of Duke. I chair a weekly international lecture series on Movement Disorders and serve on the editorial board of the “Neurology Nuts and Bolts” podcast. Clinically, I am a movement disorder specialist with particular interest in Huntington’s disease and palliative care in movement disorders.

I hope you consider applying to Duke. The residency leadership team strives to help our residents become part of the next generation of leaders in whatever career path they choose. If I can answer any questions, please feel free to email me at
