This bothers me to no end. If you have to lie to make yourself sound great, then that is proof that you really aren't.
There are people on the UW Optometry website listed with the title "assistant clinical professor."
I've also found it very interesting that so many Ontario OD's list on their websites the names of all the products they sell in their dispensaries... something that is very clearly an act of professional misconduct in Ontario.
Don't these people read the College regulations? Why follow any of the college rules?
There is no "clinical professorship" track at the University of Waterloo, and I don't see anybody on that faculty page link that holds the title. At the University of Waterloo,
Assistant Professor: Yes this exists.
Assistant Clinical Professor: No this does not exist.
Further, to obtain "Assistant Professor" status at UW, it almost absolutely required that you have a PhD. The last non-PhD to get this faculty appointment at UW was (I believe) in 1979, and the person was an OD, MSc and he likely got that appointment because there was no PhDs who applied that year.
To me, this is much ado about nothing. I don't see that as a real self-aggrandizing situation. It may not be technically correct, but to me saying "assistant clinical professor" or "assistant professor" matters little when the information is for consumption by the general public. I beleive that the person is just trying to say that they teach, or have taught student clinicians in the clinic at UW.
Again, I don't have a real issue with it.
I also have my doubt that either of these folks have significant (if any) roles as clinicians at UW. I was there recently and I've never heard of either of them.
Ophthalmologists and Optometrists Whats the Difference?
"It is very likely that this will result in inappropriate care, missed diagnoses, and potentially even deaths due to prescribing errors on the part of newly empowered optometrists.".
Ironic that you should say that they are "just trying to say that they teach, or have taught student clinicians in the clinic at UW." If that's the case, why don't they just say that? They can say they act as clinic supervisors in the UW clinic.
But apparently that's not good enough, so they call themselves part-time professors and what not.
are you even a real OD? why don't you worry about improving your own biography than ragging on others who are clearly more intelligent that you are. You are nor never will be a professor of any kind since you spend all your time writing on message boards complaining about accomplished doctors.
You are the most pathetic person i have come across in a while.. do something worthwhile with your time and stop being so jealous of others.
In other words, get a ****ing life you cock sucking piece of ****...
Hey, I'm sorry I trashed your cheap bio. But you're the one who put it online for the world to see.
I stand by my opinions.
What happened to the reputation stuff? Or is it all gone? One-day experiment gone bad?
There was all that "advertising" in the headers saying after much deliberation and everyone requesting it, the forums were changed BACK to reputation feedback.
But now I see my post count...
Perhaps a mod can reply.
Always wondered about this...
I can make a "guess" as to why there is no chiropractic forum (my guess would be that SDN has taken a specific position on the medical nature of chiropractic), but I thought I'd ask.
Not sure why.
Here is the link the the "Contact SDN" page. An admin there may be able to answer your question.
And I'm not sure what you are talking about in regards to the "search the child forum" comment. I couldn't get anything like that to come up. SDN does have a high school forum now, so perhaps that's what you are seeing?
