Seminar description:

Clinical reasoning for TCM diagnosis/assessment is essential for a good treatment result. We have learned theory of clinical diagnosis in TCM but found it hard to match the  book to the clinical situation. This seminar will teach you to make the logical reasoning for presented symptoms by your patient through a systematic analysis based on TCM theory in order to form a best treatment plan. We will focus on Zang Fu and channel differentiation and give you a chance to refresh your knowledge.

The seminar will be delivered by combining lectures and real case study mode to allow you learning the way of reasoning. We will cover respiratory conditions, digestive conditions, autoimmune diseases, skin diseases and other miscellaneous problems such as gynecological conditions and mental health problems.  It will be interesting and fruitful days by further learning TCM knowledge and diagnosis.
