Comprehensive Chinese Herbal Medicine: Year 1 

October 2020 – October 2021

This is the first year of the Jade Institute’s intensive Chinese herbal medicine training program.  Enrollment is limited and class size will be small in order to encourage class discussion, questions, and a mentorship style education.

In year one of this comprehensive herbal study program, basic materia medica and formulas are covered, with emphasis on a 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 learning by clinical application with attention to deepening diagnostic skills and pattern discrimination.  Click here for more information or to register.
