My goal as a teacher is to encourage students to think in a rational method so that this can be applied in unfamiliar situations; after all the goal of education is to encourage seeking answers. I believe in maintaining a good rapport with students, motivating students to give their best effort in all that they do. To care for the students as individuals and helping them to achieve their best is important for me as a teacher. I try to create an atmosphere in the classroom where students know that I am excited to teach them and they are encouraged to participate in the discussion. I use a lot of examples in the classroom recounting real life situations that I have encountered as a doctor and get the students involved in decision making concerning clinical situations. I also believe in trying to teach in a humane manner where students understand the importance of the value of human life, being empathetic with patients , instilling the value of dignity and trust in their patients.
