Improving the value of the healthcare system is essential in order to provide each individual with the opportunity to pursue their own goals.  Utilizing my training in medicine, Orthopaedics, and Epidemiology, I hope to contribute to improvements in the healthcare system which will help lead to improved value and increased access to care for patients.  I also strive to improve the wellbeing and performance of healthcare providers so that they are better able to help their own patients.
