It was an Alfred State professor that planted the first seed of a potential teaching career in Dr. Waldeis’ mind. “I was educating this person about a certain health condition, and she commented on my thorough yet highly understandable description, asking if I had ever thought about teaching. And the rest is history,” Dr. Waldeis says.
A doctor of chiropractic medicine in the Finger Lakes region by trade, Dr. Waldeis received his associate degree from Finger Lakes Community College, his bachelor’s degree from SUNY Empire State College, a master’s from the University of Bridgeport, and his doctorate at the New York Chiropractic College. He brings more than 15 years of on-the-job medical knowledge to his courses in human anatomy and physiology, advanced pathophysiology, essentials of exercise physiology, human biology, and nutrition.
Although Dr. Waldeis loves the online learning format, he advises his potential student to remember that with any new environment, there will be a learning curve. “In return for their tolerance and patience as they learn to navigate the technology, they will be rewarded with an educational opportunity that allows for great amounts of liberty and freedom in terms of how it can be integrated into one’s schedule. The end result, I believe, is that most students will ultimately find the online format to be an interesting and enjoyable experience that offers tremendous convenience,” he says. “Above all, come prepared to work hard, but do expect to be amazed with the fascinating discovery of the intricacies of how the human body works.”
