Why I love teaching:

Since 2016, I have been actively involved in shaping the future of aspiring medical professionals by teaching the USMLE-based curriculum. Guiding students through the intricacies of medical education has been a rewarding experience, and I am committed to nurturing the next generation of healthcare professionals. I utilize combination of didactic lectures, quizzes, small group interactive sessions (since the class population and room is inherently small) and virtual slides for teaching.
