Director of Pathology Informatics, Co-Director Pathology Residency Program
I am responsible for directing the informatics for the Department of Pathology. I work with our hospital's Information Services department in managing the laboratory information systems and serve as a bridge between IS and Pathology. I help to manage the department's requests and recommend projects to advance the practice of pathology and the mission of the medical center. I am heavily involved with education, serving as co-director of the pathology residency program and working to implement informatics into the residency. In partnership with several other departments I plan to develop a comprehensive clinical informatics fellowship program at UIC. My specific research interests include digital imaging and image analysis of medical examiner images, the applications of collaborative technology to enhance medical practice, education and research, and researching education.
