Dr. Snyder is a family medicine physician and the program director at the Cleveland Clinic Family Medicine Residency Program. Her research and family medicine curricula development aligns with the bureau’s priority on the implementation of data-driven outcomes across training. For example, she recently developed a 60-hour, longitudinal leadership in patient safety and quality curriculum and developed an accelerated undergraduate medical education (UGME)/graduate medical education (GME) pathway in population health known as the Transformative Care Continuum. She has presented in peer-reviewed forums at the local, state, and national levels covering topics critical to preparing the future physician workforce such as Assessing Resident Physician Performance in Electronic Health Record (EHR) Data Acquisition and Management and Unique Evaluation Measures to Recruit the Medical Student of the Future.

Her expertise in assessing residence performance in the EHR and strategies to recruit the medical student of the future aligns with the cutting edge priorities of the Bureau of Health Workforce and will make her a valuable asset to the committee.
