Health Policy and Management/School of Medicine MD/PhD Candidate
|I am an MD/PhD student at the University of North Carolina, pursuing an interest and future residency in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry within the School of Medicine, and a degree in Health Policy and Management within the Gillings School of Global Public Health. My research to date has focused on psychiatric treatment and service utilization among children and adolescents. I am particularly interested in the role of the emergency department in providing acute psychiatric care to pediatric patients, which will be the focus of my dissertation research.
