Fall 2018 - Spring 2020 course is organized by Helms Medical Institute (HMI) and will be held from Dec 12, 2019 - May 24, 2020 at Tempe Mission Palms Hotel and Conference Center, Tempe, Arizona, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 300.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Course Description:
Medical Acupuncture for Physicians presents the foundation of acupuncture science and theory, channel and point location, needling techniques, approaches to diagnosis and therapy, and patient management. It is a practice-oriented program that creates a sophisticated structure for the intelligent use of acupuncture. The course gives full dignity to both contemporary biomedical science and the medical tradition found in classical Chinese texts, and enables you to adapt acupuncture creatively into your clinical environment.

The training is organized into three units that involve home study and videocourse viewing, live lectures and demonstrations, and closely supervised clinical training. The introductory weekend and core videocourse curriculum are the same for all participants, while the specialty videocourse curriculum and clinical units are offered in two pathways.

Course Content:
• Basic science foundations of acupuncture
• Clinical science levels of evidence
• Fundamental tenets of traditional acupuncture theory
• Hybrid contemporary model of acupuncture
• Channel and point function, location, and palpation
• Integrated approaches to diagnosis and therapy
• Needling technique
• Patient management
• Practice set up, building, and billing

Learning Objectives:
This course is designed to meet the needs of physicians seeking responsible and comprehensive training in the emerging discipline of medical acupuncture. In doing so, this CME activity addresses the demands of patients and physicians seeking a safe and time-tested complement or alternative to conventional medical therapies, whether for pain or general medical problems accessible to acupuncture.

If you participate conscientiously in all aspects of the training, this Medical Acupuncture for Physicians program will enable you to:

Apply this skill when addressing neuromusculoskeletal and headache pain problems in your clinical setting, and thereby reduce exclusive reliance on pharmaceuticals;
Use the acupuncture diagnostic model to interpret premorbid and stress-related problems that typically escape explanation, that is, address the “worried well” issues in your patients;
Use acupuncture as an early intervention tool in managing chronic pain patients, as primary treatment or in collaboration with medications and other interventions;
Relate on a more intimate, interactive, and practical level with your patients, and thus allow you to enjoy anew your practice of medicine.

Introductory Weekend: 12-16 December 2019
Clinical One: 14-18 February 2020
Clinical Two: 20-24 May 2020
