Ongoing Research/Faculty Practice Support
- Primarily, I mentor USA graduate and doctoral students through my own faculty practice with the CON and VHP. USA students in addition to other university graduate students participate in obtaining internal medicine and primary care clinical hours in an ambulatory practice setting where I have established my own clientele/patient load and work collaboratively with physicians, dentists and allied health partners. VHP provides a medical home to patients from ages 19-65 in the greater gulf coast region that are medically uninsured with a variety of healthcare needs. At VHP, I have established my own research interest that informs my practice. In addition, I collaborate in the clinical education of USA medicine and allied health students who are assigned hours at VHP on an ongoing basis. Compensation toward my salary support equivalent to 12 months of grant support year round is awarded to the university including my unique clinical schedule with professional accountability that is year round. At VHP, I am available to students across a wide spectrum and its unique clinic setting provides rich research opportunities for multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary and intra-disciplinary departments (and colleges).
