Introduction E-mail me at emlar

Since early 2004, I have been a full-time assistant professor at the UCLA School of Medicine. I work primarily in the General Internal Medicine Division at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (a large county medical facility). Currently, I teach medical students, interns and residents in our program and am involved in a number of academic projects.

I have been in private practice with several multispecialty groups and have worked as a hospitalist both for a group and as a solo practitioner before assuming my current position at UCLA.
