I am an Associate Professor and the Associate Medical Director for Inpatient Obstetrics, Director of Quality, and Deputy Director of Obstetric Simulation and Outreach for the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at UT Health San Antonio.
Education
I completed my undergraduate degree at Stanford University, then attended the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences where I received my Doctor of Medicine. I completed my internship and residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Washington.
Clinical & Community Involvement
I am passionate about patient safety and team dynamics and am one of the initial project participants who worked on the development of MedTeams, which is now known as TeamSTEPPS, a program used across the United States. I am a principal contributor on the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists (ACOG) Emergencies in Clinical Obstetrics course and am a member of the national ACOG Simulation Work Group. I am on the Board of Directors for the Society of OB/GYN Hospitalists and served as the Simulation and Annual Clinical Meeting Committee Chair as well as the Secretary for this organization.
Faculty Leader
I built two OB Hospitalist programs and served as Director of the OB Hospitalist Division at Baylor College of Medicine. I served as a Maternal Medical Director and was selected as the inaugural ACOG surveyor for Levels of Maternal Care in Texas. I was selected by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) as teaching faculty for TexasAIM working on mitigating the effects of obstetric hemorrhage in 2020 and hypertensive emergencies in pregnancy in 2021.
Special Interests
I am deeply passionate about reducing maternal morbidity and mortality through the assimilation of information, determination of best practice and creation of programs to teach and implement these practices into the everyday life of individuals and institutions.
I love my wife and six children and enjoy traveling and attending the theater with them.
