Courses Taught

In addition to my catheterization rebuilding and other clinical duties I had assumed the position of cardiology resident education. At that time I was able to establish the early cardiology teaching curriculum for the newly established “resident school”. Outside of resident education I have been involved with medical student teaching. I have provided lectures for the Phase I and II students. I also am a part of the adult congenital program here at the University of New Mexico and give lectures to the adult cardiology fellows.

In support of our rebuilding process I give yearly lectures to the neonatal intensive care nurses on post catheterization management in the neonate. I helped establish a curriculum for the pediatric intensive care nurses regarding congenital heart disease in the ICU setting as well as post-surgical management. I have provided education to the catheterization staff and have developed learning modules which as well as other creative learning venues to help with their training with the new procedures we bring into the institution.

Research and Scholarship

I have not been involved with research to any significant degree. My cardiology career has been pretty much clinical and with rebuilding programs not leaving much time for any additional responsibilities. I was a secondary investigator for the Amplatzer ASD device and did research in fellowship. I have not been involved with any research since being at the University of New Mexico.
