Dr. Muchmore has been active in delineating the effective components of resident supervision in the academic environment; she also maintains a small laboratory investigating the regulation of expression of selected cell surface sialic acid modifications. In her role as a clinician educator and administrator at the VA, she has worked with a small team to develop an electronic chart-based tool to measure the time spent performing direct and indirect supervision of resident trainees. It has been demonstrated that using this metric in outpatient settings, there is a direct correlation between direct supervision time required and stage of training. Her group is now working to launch use of this tool widely, with the goal of better assessing the quantity and quality of resident supervision in the academically-affiliated VA medical centers. She has also worked to define training milestones for Internal Medicine-based fellowships, and for Hematology/Oncology.
