Traditional Chinese Medicine Learning Tools

The files available here relate to the classes and clinic work that I completed while at AOMA Graduate School for Integrated Medicine.
I built these files as study guides and  learning tools to help me grasp the material being presented and to help me prepare for my work as a clinician and for the NCCAOM Board Exams. The files are offered with the understanding that they derive from my limited knowledge base. I take full responsibility for all errors and omissions, which are, I hope, few. If, however, you find any opportunities for me to improve my understanding of the universe (typo's, data errors), please feel free to let me know and I'll attend to them for the benefit of all. I recommend that you check back occasionally for an updated version of any file, because I do make changes to existing files as I learn....think of it as adaptive evolution! My intent is to offer something that might help you as you learn; so take what is useful to you and feel free to share this page with others who might benefit. Happy learning!
