Dr. Renee Coffman, President of Roseman University of Health Sciences, will speak on Tuesday, May 20, 2014 on the the "Roseman Method",
The Roseman Method is an innovative teaching method:
1. Block Curriculum. Each class is an immersion into the topic with one course at a time, six hours a day for five days a week, which allows students to completely focus on that topic to gain a deeper understanding.
2. Content Mastery. Roseman does not have grades. Students either pass or fail. To pass the students must achieve 90% on all tests.
3. Variety of Teaching Methods. Roseman understands that students learn the material in different ways which is why they employ several methods of teaching - lecture, hands-on, experimental and real-life situations.
4. Collaboration. Students must work together as part of the learning process. Because students are not graded, there is no competition between students. Students feel free to help other. It's a positive environment.
"When You Build a University from Scratch, You are Free to Invent and Improve on the Status Quo."
The results are impressive. Roseman students in Pharmacy, Nursing and Dental Medicine consistently pass 95% on their first time on their examination boards.
Dr. Renee Coffman is the president and co-founder of Roseman University which offers Colleges of Pharmacy, Nursing and Dental Medicine, an MBA program and has more than 1,000 students. She holds a pharmacy degree from Ohio Northern University and her doctorate is in industrial and physical pharmacy from Purdue University.
Dr. Coffman's mentor is co-founder, Dr. Harry Rosenberg. He taught her that whether it's a student in a classroom or an employee, no one walks in hoping to fail. "Your main focus is really simple-it's to help that individual succeed. I strive every day to ensure that my students can succeed in the classroom and that people who work for Roseman have opportunity to succeed in their jobs," she told the Las Vegas Woman Magazine, May 2013.
