UMAB happends to be one of the schools
that I will check out, but I,m trying to keep from being in a program that's more liberal arts than it is science. I don't want to mention the school on the open forum. I want to talk about a paticular instructor's lack of scientific basis for almost anything
as an example of the kind of program I want to avoid. This instructor was fair in her grading, and gave a supreme effort to help me so I respect that. I will repay her for her kindness by not blabbing on an open forum. All I will say on the open forum is that most of her pre and post conferrence involved psychosocial, therpeutic touch thought process and she was obsessed with the "healing power of spirituality", although she was never pushy about any of it. Bless her heart, she was the straw that broke the camel's back.
I came from a community college program that taught almost nothing but psychosocial, health-illness continuum(all psychosocial), transcultural, life-span development, psych.....................in other words, "touchy-feely" subjects. As for the science, as we will call it, it was an afterthought. It was rarely used in the examinations, and it was definitely not
lectured or compiled by anyone that had a science degree.
If you think of more you want to tell me about your clinicals or didactic, fire away.
