Teaching Interests

Teaching Philosophy
“My teaching philosophy centers around self-directed learning and professionalism. The best tool we can provide students with is the ability to continue learning in a self-directed manner. In my everyday interactions with students, I push them to apply critical thinking skills, to articulate the underlying rationale of every recommendation and to critically assess whether those recommendations are truly in their patient’s best interest.”
