How does it work?

  • The instructor will invite 3-6 participants per meeting, on a first-come-first serve basis, to present their cases
  • No advance submission of written reports required, but please be prepared to present cases organized in SOAP format (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Plan), along with your priority questions
  • The instructor will lead and moderate peer review, discussion, and advice
  • Participants share knowledge and experience -- learn from, and network with other acupuncturists

21 hours (7 x 3-hour meetings*) required for Certification in Acupuncture Orthopedics

When COVID Shelter-in-Place orders were first issued in March, 2020, the DAOM program where I was serving as an Clinic Supervisor was faced with the problem of how to deliver quality educational and training of hands-on material via on-line meetings. We soon found a surprising benefit: by switching from passive observation of instructor demonstration to active discussion of students' cases from their own clinics, participants found they gained at least as much if not more from on-line meetings--so much so, that many asked the school to continue the case study and mentorship format, even after the clinic re-opened for in-person observation! This is the inspiration to add on-line Case Consultation and Clinical Support meetings to the Certification program.
