Welcome to Ascension St. Vincent! We are an excellent place to train and grow.

I’m so excited to be the new Internal Medicine Residency Program Director! Having been an Associate Director for 11 years and the Transitional Year Director for the prior 8 years here at Ascension St. Vincent, I am new to the position but not to leadership and our great training program. We are a values-based residency program embedded in a mission-driven organization. This is “Who We Are:”


  1. We are excellent physician professionals and leaders.
  2. We are people of integrity.
  3. We model empathy, respect, and compassion for patients and colleagues.
  4. We have a culture of curiosity, feedback, accountability, self-reflection, and continuous evolution.
  5. We are creative and innovative.
  6. We strive for equity and transparency.
  7. We embody positivity, honesty, and teamwork.
  8. We are forward-thinking, anticipatory, and visionary in determining how medical education is influenced by societal and healthcare pressures and trends.
  9. We understand that what is best for our patients is also best for our learners.
  10. We seek a diverse team of physicians who represent our community.
  11. We provide high-quality evidence-based care and are committed to lifelong learning.
  12. We promote high-value education and continuous, real-time, and resident-driven change.

  14. We believe that a supportive learning environment and strong mentorship are critical to the professional and personal success of our learners and faculty.
We aim to be the best community-based Internal Medicine residency program in the country and undergo continuous self-evaluation and innovation to ensure our residents will be role models of success and fulfillment in the healthcare system of the future. My goal is to support both your personal and professional development during your residency through education, mentorship, and a commitment to your wellbeing.
