I have 19 years of experience, and specialize in the field of physician assistant malpractice with specific knowledge in the areas of general medicine, emergency medicine and physician assistant (PA) education and training. I have published on such topics as physician assistant malpractice, PA education, risk management and PA practice and employment. I have testified 15 times on topics such as PA malpractice, PA education and PA risk management. I recently completed a Phd in educational leadership and policy analysis to complement my degrees. My dissertation topic reviewed the first 17 years of data in the National Practitioner Data Bank comparing malpractice incidence and other safety markers between PAs, physicians and advanced practice nurses.
