I have a pharmacogenomics consult service in an outpatient psychiatric clinic one morning per week. As part of our clinic practice, pharmacy residents with an ambulatory care focus are embedded as part of the psychiatric team in our medical complicated psychiatric clinic. I oversee the teaching activities and the subsequent evaluation of all residents including our PGY1 ambulatory care psychiatry focus and PGY2 psychiatric pharmacy residents. My research areas of interest include the clinical application of pharmacogenomics and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Since I'm a department chair, I don't currently have a practice site. However, I am involved in a clinic every few months that is dedicated to mental health care for the medically underserved. My primary teaching responsibilities include lecturing in psychiatric pharmacotherapy and teaching an elective course titled “Mental Illness and Treatment in the Movies.” I am routinely involved in various mental health-related scholarly pursuits, including clinical, laboratory, and pedagogical research projects.
