Teaching Philosophy

My philosophical approach to teaching pharmacy students is to provide a model of caring, empathy and compassion so that when the students are involved in patient-related situations, they will be able to model this caring attitude.  I strive to teach the pharmacotherapy of antibiotics, and the use of medications in our geriatric population with practical application so that the students will use this knowledge to effectively identify, research and solve patient-related pharmacotherapy issues.  My approach to pharmacy is heavily interdisciplinary and interprofessional so that the pharmacy students can realistically "see" the important contributions of pharmacy to patient care within the team spirit.
