Mohammad has many years of clinical experience in various clinical settings and at least 10 years of academic experience in PT education. Due to his unique professional background his teaching is clinically relevant and contemporary, and his clinical practice is consumer-focused, evidence-based and strong in pedagogy. Mohammad believes physical therapy education should be student-focused. In addition to successful graduation, board exam and employment, students should be satisfied with their education and continue to remain engaged with their profession. He believes his job as an educator is not only to teach the students the subject matter, but also to teach them professionalism by role modeling.
