When students discover new dimensions of knowledge, they are able to apply their understanding to other medical fields and disciplines.

My philosophy of teaching emphasizes giving students more than just the facts and textbook materials. The desire to learn is motivated by curiosity, creativity, and enjoyment. When students discover new dimensions of knowledge, they are able to apply their understanding to other medical fields and disciplines. I use new teaching technologies and incorporate interactive modules to help inspire these other dimensions of the students' education.
