Why I love to teach

Loading...

I am an emergency medicine physician and the director of POCUS at the Stanford Department of Emergency Medicine. My fellowship training in point of care ultrasound (POCUS) fundamentally changed my clinical practice, and has made me a more confident and efficient physician. Having seen the benefits of using POCUS in my practice, I’m dedicated to teaching POCUS to all healthcare professionals.
