My goal as a clinical instructor is to help future pharmacists develop the skills necessary to take independent thinking and learning beyond the scope of the classroom, with exceptional patient care at the forefront of each learning experience. I embrace case-based teaching and active learning activities as they stimulate intellectual camaraderie and cooperative problem solving, and lay the groundwork for life-long collaborative interprofessional practice.
