What Our Program Participants Say…

Michael Aaron Schick, D.O., MA

I wanted the tools and knowledge to be an excellent educator

I joined ITSP because I wanted the tools and knowledge to be an excellent educator. ITSP provided me a diverse set of educational methods and new ideas that I have already utilized in my courses.
