Student Testimonial - Class of Sept 2013

Hi Dr. Pourgol

I want to let you know how much I'm enjoying your lectures so far. They are very informative, straight forward, and fun. You find great ways to relate to every day topics, as well, you make it easy to understand.

All the business and marketing talk in the ""Ethics and Clinical Management" course is extremely helpful even in my work today as a personal trainer. I appreciate you giving the time to share what you've learned a long the way. I can't wait to put this knowledge to use when I am done the program next year.

Thanks and take care
