About Susan


Bio

I have been tutoring on Wyzant for two years. I tutor physiology and pathophysiology to college, nursing, PA, NP and medical students. In addition, I assist with clinical skills development including oral presentations, clinical interviewing, physical exam, write-ups, clinical reasoning and ECG interpretation. Because of my basic science background and long clinical experience, I see the whole human organism, from the su-cellular level to the psychosocial environment and can help learners...

I have been tutoring on Wyzant for two years. I tutor physiology and pathophysiology to college, nursing, PA, NP and medical students. In addition, I assist with clinical skills development including oral presentations, clinical interviewing, physical exam, write-ups, clinical reasoning and ECG interpretation. Because of my basic science background and long clinical experience, I see the whole human organism, from the su-cellular level to the psychosocial environment and can help learners see how it all fits together.

I am a retired primary care internist. I was a teaching attending at the Duke School of Medicine's primary care clinic at the Durham VA for over 10 years and love one to one teaching. I hold a BA in Biological Sciences from Northwestern and MD from the University Chicago. In addition, I have extensive training in mediation and was a community mediator for four years which has enhanced my communication skills.

Learners come in all different levels, and all different ways to learn. I adjust my approach to the learner. Wherever you are in your learning journey, I will meet you there.

I continue to be fascinated with the marvels of the human body and would love to help you achieve a deep understanding of its structure and workings. Let's communicate about what your needs are and how I can help.

Nursing

As a physician, I would never presume to be able to tutor in all aspects of nursing. It is a distinct profession with a distinct skills. However, the knowledge base for anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology are similar. I have over 30 years of clinical experience and have been a preceptor for internal medicine residents for their clinical learning for over 10 and can assist you in your learning in these areas.

Anatomy

Back when in medical school I was a teaching assistant in both Anatomy and Clinical Pathophysiology with an emphasis on microscopic anatomy in health and disease. I have taught Internal Medicine residents one on one in their primary care clinics for over 10 years. For thirty years as a physician, every physical exam has been an exercise in anatomy

Nabila, 1 lesson with Susan

Listened and rose to the challenge!

Susan listened to my concerns and fears and addressed them. We have only met for one session so far, we meet again this week, but she jumped right in and helped me address my orthopedic questions regarding assessments. She did not hesitate to show me how to do assessments and answer questions. I look forward to our next session.
