Academic Interests

Dr. Pincavage focuses on medical education research in a variety of areas. She is currently involved in a project working on improving transitions of care and education in transitions of care for the Internal Medicine Resident continuity clinic. The specific transition that she is researching is the year-end clinic handoff when residents graduate from residency and transfer their patients to another resident. As part of this project she is also researching the patient perspectives of clinic handoffs and how to make these experiences more patient-centered. She is also researching educational outcomes of our new free clinic training experience for the Internal Medicine residents at CommunityHealth in Englewood.
