    Clinical Specialties and Practitioner Development Program

    Beginning March 2021-Clinical Specialties and Practitioner Development Program with Dr. Evan Rabinowitz, D.Ac. 

    10% off for ASDC members!

    This is a program that addresses three areas:
    1. More clinical training
    2. Deeper knowledge of specialty practice
    3. Perspective that allows for the integration of western medical concepts into a Chinese medical paradigm without diminishing or oversimplifying the depths, complexity and explanatory power of Chinese medicine
    This program was designed to meet these needs.   It is a ten month opportunity for practitioners, newly graduated or established, to find the confidence required to treat difficult and complex cases.
