Dr. Farrell is a local board member of the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, and the APP Co-Chair for the Pediatric Trauma Society. Dr. Farrell describes her teaching philosophy as being based on an influential educator/mentor early in her career. “This scion of pediatric medicine once told me he learns something new every day, and this premise of lifelong learning guides my teaching philosophy and highlights the mutual benefits of student/instructor interaction. I believe that if instructors are open to new information, students can teach as well as receive information. I have based my professional and academic career on the premise that I will continue to grow and learn from anyone in any possible situation.
