Engaging students in the process of learning clinical skills means identifying their starting point and providing them the pathway to master the skill.

Observation, feedback and opportunities to practice in a structured environment give students the competence and confidence they need to succeed. My goal is to help students understand their strengths, appreciate what they need to learn and know when to ask for help.
