Teaching Philosophy I find teaching one of the most interesting jobs. My ultimate goal is to help the student getting the knowledge, skills and attitudes that enable her/him to cope with the patient needs and to be a long-life with learner. The ability of teaching students from different cultural backgrounds and selection of reliable information from a wide variety of resources available are real challenges. I believe that teaching is better described as learning, which, in its broad meaning, requires efforts of both the teacher and the learner. We should start from what my students know and take it as a departure point to develop their knowledge, skills and attitude. My main task is to foster critical thinking and to encourage involvement of the students in objective discussions. Developing good relationship among patients and members of the health team is one of the major goals I'm trying to emphasize all through my courses for future pharmacists. Being knowledgeable together with mastering communication and education skills provide the students with the confident attitude required. Humanitarian issues and a sense of humor can add a lot to the understanding of the students and their capability to deal with problems and obstacles.
