|Dr. Faruqui is
a Professor of Physiology at
Palmer College of Chiropractic, Palmer University System, located in Davenport, Iowa, U. S. A.
the following courses: Cellular
I in the First Year curriculum and Renal Physiology in the Second Year
curriculum of the Doctor of Chiropractic program.
My philosophy of teaching is to help students achieve educational objectives, including but not limited to cognitive learning, and creating interest in the subject. I am concerned about helping my students during their lifelong learning process; i.e., to develop their interest, and to provide a base of concepts that will facilitate further pursuit of knowledge and thinking. I believe that education, if it is done right, involves an intense and lasting link between two human beings. That moment of connection can lead to what happens when we translate our desire into a love of the subject and eventual learning of that subject. I try to facilitate this connection in my interactions with the students.
This web site is a small step in this direction. Students of Physiology will find useful information regarding not only the courses, but also health in general. An electronic syllabus, lab schedule, assignments, some overheads, handouts, and journal links and many useful links are also available at the click of the mouse.
