Our Methodology

We believe everyone has the potential to slide down the slippery slope and make a mistake—but not everyone slips. In our courses, participants first examine their flawed reasoning and understand how they initially failed to uphold professional conduct. Our faculty then guide them to develop the insights and habits essential to move forward as a safer professional.

PBI Faculty

Our Faculty are committed to excellence in education and an individualized approach to teaching. Faculty are selected based on their clinical, academic, and professional expertise. Additionally, faculty are approved through our joint providership with the University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine.
