Certification in Integrated Manual Medicine
Manual Medicine Australasia is proud to offer its Certification in Integrated Manual Medicine, the very first program of its kind in Australia.
Drawing on years of clinical experience, teaching and research, we endeavour to bring the very best lecturers who are among the leaders in their respective professions from all around the world. They have a wealth of clinical experience and skills from a wide variety of modalities. Most importantly, they are practising clinicians. Bringing these specialists to you provides the ability to learn a broad range of technique and treatment approaches from various modalities in a streamline approach. It also has the added benefit of providing a significant reduction of travel time and the high costs involved in travelling to participate in seminars/workshops overseas.
This program is designed to significantly build upon the fundamentals of manual medicine and existing skill sets. Our main aim is to bridge the gap between college/university and actual clinical practice. For students and practitioners of related manual medicine programs, it may assist in filling in the gaps, build upon previous knowledge and expand and enhance current skill sets.
A strong structural and anatomical approach is taken and all participants can look forward to developing strong manual proficiency on completion of the certificate. Plenty of time is allocated between workshops to allow the material to be thoroughly absorbed and put into practice, ensuring technical proficiency.
The combined hours for this certification is 220 hours.
There are 9 seminars that need to be completed within a 36-month period, before sitting a final exam.
