He completed his PGY1 Pharmacy Residency and PGY2 Internal Medicine Residency at the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC. He is a Clinical Associate Professor at the UMCOP and a clinical pharmacist specialist in Pain and Palliative Care at Michigan Medicine and is the Residency Program Director for the PGY2 Pain Management and Palliative Care Pharmacy Residency. His clinical practice includes inpatient and outpatient palliative care and outpatient chronic pain.

Michael's research interests focus on the safe use of symptom management medications in vulnerable patients, namely analgesics for patients with and who survive cancer. His methodological interests lie within mixed methods and large datasets. His ultimate goal is to support providers who care for vulnerable patients with real time support, emulating that of his clinical practice.
