Cum Laude in a Special Field

As a Chief Resident in the BWH/MGH Harvard-Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency, I have a strong interest in systems improvement and ED operations. I believe that over the next decade, some of the greatest advances in the care of our patients will come from improving the structure and process by which we provide high quality healthcare, and I am interested in working with others across the institution with similar goals.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
