Philosophy of Care
I feel fortunate to have been able to join the UC Davis faculty. I not only care for patients in my area of specialization, but do so as a member of a talented, dynamic department that is active in teaching and research as well as clinical care. In this setting, I know my knowledge and skills will constantly expand, keeping me on the cutting edge of the profession and allowing me to give my patients the best possible care.
Dr. Murin's key interests encompass smoking and the lung, deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, heritable thrombophilias, and resource utilization, including the influence of education on this subject matter. Her clinical projects include the effects of smoking on breast cancer, mechanical ventilation and the efficacy of weaning protocols, and improved approaches to pleural effusion.
