Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is to treat students as adult learners, exchanging views, opinions, thoughts, ideas, and real world experiences relating to health care system. Readings and examinations contribute to the learning process; however, participation in this class is very important. I do not believe in doing "busy work" which does not contribute to learning. There will be total academic freedom in my classroom.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
