Comprehensive Chinese Herbal Medicine: Year 1

By October 3, 2017 No Comments


In year one of this comprehensive herbal study program, basic materia medica and formulas will be covered, with emphasis on real life clinical case approach and patient centered perspective.  Single herbs and formulas are taught together in a new integrated system that moves emphasis from memorization and theory to clinical application with attention to deepening diagnostic skills and pattern discrimination.  Enrollment is limited and class size will be small in order to encourage class discussion, questions, and a mentorship style education.
