Diagnosis & Treatment with Jason D. Robertson
14 NCCAOM PDAs approved; NCALB pending
This class will be both a continuation of the Introductory Channel Palpation classes and an opportunity to see channel palpation and diagnosis with real patients. The format for the two-day class will involve lectures on the clinical application of common point pairs, clinical demonstration on live patients and an interactive dialogue with participants who have practiced channel palpation. Participating students will have further opportunity to develop palpation skills in this class. In addition, this class will involve hands-on advanced point location and needle technique instruction.
The in-person weekend course will be limited to 30 participants. Participants will be required to wear N95 or KN95 masks while on campus. Depending on COVID-19 case numbers at the time, we may require home tests for each day of class to attend.
Students interested in attending this course should either have previously attended a course with one of the apprentices of Professor Wang Juyi or have taken the online introductory course provided by Jung Tao (separate registration for this class will allow students to access a recording of Jason Roberson’s lectures).
