Faculty Bio
Zarir Marawala
DPM
I am a teacher or human physiology and anatomy. I have been in practice as a podiatrist for 14 years, currently retired, and enjoying full-time teaching. I have served as a forensic medical science expert in med-legal cases, and have written a few books and developed some bodies of interactive software to augment my students' learning practices.
I teach full-time at Chabot and part-time at SMU for over 5 years. I don't have an office at SMU but I am in the Basic Sciences Department, headed by Dr. Fred Feuchter, chair.
Teaching Interest

Pedagogy and its impact on student learning.
