Teaching Philosophy: "The primary goal of my course and lectures is "to guide my students to be competent and caring pharmacists" by educating them on evidence-based pharmacotherapy and the application of contemporary guidelines. This is accomplished by patient cases discussions, sample questions, and frequent quizzes to develop critical thinking ability and its application to patients. I always believe that patients are served through the education I provide to my students. My high expectations and the way to succeed in my courses are identified for the students during my first lecture of each semester. In order to further assist my students in meeting these high standards and expectations, I always try to "go an extra-step" for those who may require additional help. In fact, the essential strategy of my teaching is summarized as "go an extra-step."
