Building a program based upon philosophies that foster dialogue between faculty and students. I believe collaborative exploration and expression are vital links to the continuous improvement and evolution of the program”. In order to achieve this goal, I will follow the following guidelines: • I will encourage students to learn and practice beyond the evaluation of simple competency — moving toward a higher level of expertise. • I will teach students skills that are beyond simple competency, so that as professionals they will be able to self-assess their ongoing educational needs and continue to build upon their expertise. • I will equip students with the ability to think critically — enabling them to evaluate and respond to individual patient needs
