Anum Dadwani, M.D.

Medical School: University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio

Residency: UT Southwestern Dallas Children’s

Interested in quality improvement with a specific focus on discharge safety and transition of care to the outpatient setting, particularly in patients with complex care needs or recurrent admissions for diagnoses such as asthma. Other interests include health literacy and curriculum development. I chose CHofSA/BCM primarily due to the people in this program who are highly invested in their fellows and committed to providing robust clinical and scholarly training. PHM maintains an essential presence at the hospital, allowing trainees exposure to a diversity of clinical learning experiences while also tapping into numerous mentorship opportunities for scholarly work. One of the highlights of the program is a unique sedation training experience, a skill set that I was very interested in acquiring for my future practice as a pediatric hospitalist.

Phillip Juárez, M.D.

Medical School: Michigan State University College of Human Medicine

Residency: Penn State Health, Hershey Medical Center

I chose the Baylor College of Medicine San Antonio PHM Fellowship due to several factors. I am constantly amazed at the variety and complexity of patients we are able to see in a tertiary care center that is located within the community it serves. I wanted the opportunity to work with underserved and minority populations that the fellowship provides. I also had a great interest in the sedation program. Lastly, I wanted the educational opportunities for curriculum design and teaching that were available at an institution with a newer residency and a new medical school affiliation with the University of Incarnate Word, as well as our existing affiliation with the Baylor College of Medicine students from Houston. My main passions are clinical work and education, as well as QI.

Kristin Vaughan, M.D., FAAP

After graduating from her Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship at CHofSA, Dr. Vaughan accepted a faculty position within the Division of Pediatric Inpatient Medicine at the University of Utah, Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City. She sees patients both at Primary Children's tertiary academic center as well as a smaller, affiliated community hospital and has thoroughly enjoyed the breadth of clinical experience afforded by practicing in both environments. Additionally, she supervises medical students, residents, and PHM fellows at both sites in her current faculty role.

Dr. Vaughan's fellowship work focused on patient safety by optimizing hospital throughput. This included a quality improvement project to decrease boarding times of admitted patients in the emergency department and a systematic literature review of direct admissions. As an attending, she has been able to couple her passion for teaching with her previous experience in hospital throughput work and is currently helping to create a resident curriculum on facilitating direct admissions.
