PURPOSE OF THE COURSE


Observation I begins the supervised, practical clinical experience. It is here that students begin to learn about
becoming a true practitioner of Chinese medicine. This understanding goes to the heart of the philosophy that there
is an essential unity of thought and action: "Knowledge is the beginning of action, and action is the completion of
knowledge. Learning to be a sage involves only one effort. Knowledge and action should not be separated." (Wang
Yang-Ming) Each student will begin to learn and experience truths and abilities in diagnostics, needling, and
treatment techniques, ethics, and practice management.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

During the first semester in Clinic Observation, students come to the clinic for an introduction to clinical
practice. They will learn relevant clinical protocol and procedures. Students will begin to accumulate
practical experience and develop an appreciation for both the art and science of acupuncture.
