My philosophy in teaching is that learning never stops. As G.V. Black said, “The professional has no right to be other than a continuous student.” I try to convey this philosophy to my students. Professionalism is at the core of my teaching, as I believe that maintaining a high standard of ethical conduct and dedication is paramount in the field of education and provision of care to patients. I strive to cultivate critical thinking skills in my students, encouraging them to question, analyze, and evaluate information critically, rather than accepting it at face value. To achieve this, I embrace problem-based learning approaches, which foster active engagement and empower students to apply their knowledge to real-world challenges. Additionally, I strongly adhere to evidence-based teaching practices, constantly seeking and incorporating the latest research and best clinical practices into my teaching methods to ensure that my students receive the most effective and up-to-date education possible.
