I have been in Physician Assistant practice in the areas of Critical Care, Trauma, General Surgery and Emergency Medicine for 27 years. Training at Cook County Hospital (John Stroger Medical Center) in Chicago provided the foundation of my interest in acute hospital based medicine. I have also been actively involved in the education of future PA students as a professor and PA program associated director.
