My approach to teaching is a very pragmatic one explaining difficult concepts in an “easy to understand” format.  This and my other courses are founded on my 35 years experience in the healthcare industry growing my career from development engineer through president.  It is also based on my 15 years teaching business and healthcare at the graduate level at 2 Universities.
