Palliative Care – 12/14/2022
December 14, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
Welcome to CCSP/Palliative Care Grand Rounds
The Palliative Care and Comprehensive Cancer Support Programs (CCSP) co-organize weekly presentations on the care of seriously ill patients and their families, including individuals living with cancer, relevant to interdisciplinary clinicians. Individual topics address pain and symptom management, communication approaches with patients and families, strategies to facilitate coping and support, quality improvement and research in these disciplines.

VSED: Variable Symptoms with Etiology in the DSM?
Areas of interest in CL Psychiatry? I have pretty broad interests for now but I am particularly excited to learn more about critical care psychiatry, delirium, catatonia, and ethics.
Program Strengths / Why you chose UNC for fellowship? I have been here for medical school, residency, and now fellowship, and I never get tired of the camaraderie of UNC. People care about each other and their patients, and they strive for excellence. This is especially true of the CL group, and our CL psychiatrists have been among my favorite faculty since being a medical student. Our attendings have a blend of intellectual curiosity, deep caring, and a healthy dose of
humor that combine to make an amazing environment for training. Our patients are from all walks of life and there are many specialty units at UNC, which makes for a large variety of clinical presentations including very rare diagnoses.
What do you enjoy about the living in the Triangle? I grew up here, and for me it’s hard to beat the weather and the proximity to both coast and mountains. We have a good range of cuisines and indoor and outdoor activities to enjoy here, and a close airport if the triangle gets too small.
Fun Fact about you? Ask me about Guatemala! I lived there for a few months before medical school volunteering as a hiking guide, and I will convince anyone they need to learn more about Guatemalan history or go for a visit.
