How long have you been a member of AAIM?

Three years.

What is your favorite part of your job?

Being in the midst of building a community-based medical school and building relationships with our colleagues in both the healthcare and medical education community.

How has the AAIM membership been of value to you and your career?

Initially, as a community faculty member, AAIM was helpful as I developed my professional identity as a medical educator. In my present position as the Director for Internal Medicine, my role spans across the 4-year continuum of the MD program, as well as supporting the development of GME programs. Both the CDIM and APDIM communities have been critical for me to make connections with colleagues and learn from their experiences and expertise.
