Mentor’s Corner

Mentoring for the Department of Family & Community Medicine is about allowing our faculty to hone their leadership, decision-making and critical thinking skills. Mentors Corner is about highlighting our faculty, their interests, expertise and desire to authentically connect with others!   Mentoring is a gift of one’s perspective, time and depth of experience. Galke & Swayer (2020) acknowledge that “mentoring is about more than giving advice… [mentoring] encompasses motivation and empowerment that stems from truly understanding the mentee.”

Interested in Mentoring: I am happy to mentor anyone seeking support, guidance, or coaching on professional or personal issues they feel I can offer my expertise or experience. I primarily serve as a mentor for students who are interested in pursing family medicine as a career, family medicine residents who are interested in medical student education, and junior faculty who are starting their academic medicine careers.

Areas of interest and experience for collaboration:  Professionally: providing personalized care to patients; designing, evaluating, and refining medical student family medicine curriculum; promoting family medicine as a specialty.
Personally: my family; my faith; supporting and coaching youth sports; engaging in outdoor projects/activities.

Current Projects:  A few of my current projects include: evaluating, refining, and disseminating innovative social determinants of health family medicine clerkship curriculum; resuming a pre-medical student family medicine shadowing program that was haulted due to COVID-19; expanding family medicine elective opportunities for students at UT Health San Antonio.

Anything else you would like future mentees to consider?   Appreciate and learn from those who came before you.  Appreciate and support those who will come after.
