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 originally as study guides and learning tools to help me grasp the material being presented in school and to help me prepare for my work as a clinician and for the NCCAOM Board Exams. Many of them have been modified as my clinical experience has deepened (especially the Master Tung file). 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. My intent is to offer something that might be of service to you; so take what is useful to you and feel free to share this page with others who might benefit.
