Professional Interests

Medical etymology

International Health - I direct a summer Spanish language and health delivery course in Guatemala for medical students. The project is based in Antigua, Guatemala and includes educational excursions to surrounding health delivery sites. No prior knowledge of Spanish is required, and the program is suitable for student involvement. The program is designed for preclinical medical students and is therefore observational rather than interventional. The program is supported by Ohiyesa. Contact me or Dr. Dean Seibert for information. There is no religious affiliation. To contact me (in order of preference) E-mail me, stop by my office in the Department of Anatomy, or call me.

Courses Taught

Human Anatomy and Embryology 111 & 112
