I am a generalist Obstetrician and Gynecologist at Massachusetts General Hospital. I am the Medical Director of Labor & Delivery and Postpartum.  Through my work as Medical Director, I have had the opportunity to work with other departmental leaders to write protocols and coordinate care to create the best possible experience for our expectant mothers.  Through intensive simulation course training, and my experience coordinating medical simulation for our Obstetric care providers, I gained the experience needed to grow our simulation program at MGH, and help our learners reach their clinical and interpersonal goals as care providers.  As the Departmental Simulation Officer, I have been able to write, coordinate and execute Obstetric and Gynecologic simulations for medical students, residents in training, clinical fellows, non-professional staff, Certified Nurse Midwives and my fellow attending physicians.  As a leader in medical simulation I work to promote the concept that our diverse backgrounds, varied professions, academic rank, and levels of experience as providers should not be a barrier to effective communication and teamwork.  I have had the opportunity to teach simulation through regional presentations, national webinars, at the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology National Conference and at the Center for Medical Simulation in Boston. My experience as a course has grown to allow me the opportunity to lead obstetric crisis training for over 200 healthcare professionals, and non-professional every year.
