My research thus far has involved examination of student remediation in undergraduate anatomy, as well as the development, implementation and assessment of a supplemental course which aimed to teach students study skills in the context of the material they were covering concurrently in their anatomy course. I am interested in continuing to pursue research on issues in medical education revolving around the topics of remediations, study and metacognition. I am also interested in the assessment of curricular reform as IUSM transitions from a traditional medical curriculum to an integrated curriculum.
