"Following residency I joined the newly expanding Department of Pediatrics at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center. For the past thirteen years, I have worked with our department and the Department of Family Medicine to provide high quality pediatric education to residents and care to patients in our community. In 2002 I became chairman of the Department of Pediatrics. In addition, I am medical director of the MedStar Franklin Square Child Protection Team, the director of the community medicine and wellness service line, and a representative on the hospital's GME committee.

My experience working in the area of child maltreatment has allowed me to become involved in many community and statewide organizations. I am the past chair of the Maryland Academy of Pediatrics Child Maltreatment Committee; I have served on the Maryland State Child Fatality Review Team, the Board of Directors for the Family Tree (a statewide child abuse prevention organization) and member of the State Council on Child Abuse and Neglect (SCCAN). I chair the Baltimore County Child Fatality Review Team am a member of the County Child Protection Review Panel. This year I was president of the Maryland Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

One of the major accomplishments over the past few years in our department has been the development, implementation and evaluation of our pediatric curriculum for family medicine residents. We have been able to develop a curriculum geared toward family medicine residents, assure that all major teaching areas are covered, and evaluate each resident's competency following the ACGME guidelines. The curriculum can be found at: http://www.ambpeds.org/education/education_Curricula.cfm."
