Biography

Sok Cheon Pak began his academic career in 1995 at Chosun University Medical School (Gwangju, South Korea) as an invited lecturer. The teaching topic was the pregnancy endocrinology based on my strong research records in that area during his postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Then he was employed as a full time lecturer at Dongshin University Oriental Medical School (Naju, South Korea). Teaching was introductory subjects of Human Physiology, Medical Terminology and Human Biology relating to health areas of nurses and oriental medicine doctors. He was teaching there until 2001.

Dr Pak's new teaching career began at New Zealand College of Oriental Medicine (Hamilton, New Zealand) in 2002. The teaching subjects were Human Anatomy and Physiology and Research Methodology. As part of his continuing development program, CAT (Certificate in Adult Teaching) was undertaken and successfully completed in 2004. This was followed up with the successful completion of the Refresher Teaching Course sponsored by the Waikato University (Hamilton, New Zealand) in 2006.

Since he started another new teaching job in CSU from July 2007, he has completed FULT session (on 25 September 2007, on 5 March 2008, on 16 April 2008, on 21 May 2008) and TTC (Tertiary Teaching Colloquium) in 2009. These programs in the domain of teaching practice have become a focal aspect in the university, given the importance of the role of ongoing continuing professional development for teaching academic staff within the context of the Performance Based Funding - an initiative of the federal government.
