    The Western Medicine Fundamentals programme teaches you all about physical processes, how our organs function, how various diseases are treated and how to recognize and explain physical complaints. You will acquire a thorough knowledge of the human body; the cardiovascular system, digestive system, blood, the respiratory system, nervous system and the senses, the hormonal system, the locomotor apparatus, skin & physical warning signs.

    We also cover various psychosocial aspects, as well as conversation skills and how to connect to primary care physicians. Lastly, we will discuss ethics and your attitude as a healthcare professional towards your clients. On monthly bases, you will be taught by highly experienced holistic physicians who are all very passionate about the complementary field.

    “I highly recommend doing the WMF course with Con Amore. The administrative support is immediate, helpful and friendly. The course content, while considerable and thorough, is structured in such a way that you are never entirely overwhelmed and are able to retain the most important information. Lori Postema, our lecturer, is kind, patient, professional and approachable, and provides a comfortable and enjoyable space for learning and discussion.”
    –  Nanda, training to become a BSR Practitioner, WMF 2021

    “The study material is simply amazing, this makes me motivated again to study. I progress in my general understanding of the human body, I can clearly now identify the most important pathologies and increased my medical diagnosis. I am very happy with our teacher, she makes a great job by going to the most important points that we need to focus on. The online study day is well organized: a short break every hour and a lunch break of 1 hour, just perfect. I would say that Con amore succeed to create a solid and appropriated learning environment with great attention for all the participants.”
    – Martine Ricard, Shiatsu Practitioner (Shiatsu Point Wassenaar), WMF 2021

    Western Medicine Fundamentals – for healthcare professionals

    Western Medicine Fundamentals is the English version of our well known course ‘Medische Basiskennis’. This course is known as the #1 knowledge programme for physical therapists, Ayurvedic practitioners, coaches, dieticians, sports instructors, meditation or yoga teachers and all other professions that have anything to do with health and the body. It is also perfect for anyone who aspires to become a healthcare professional in the future, as it offers an excellent foundation for further specialisation.


    Interaction and flexibility are key features in our concept. This is clearly reflected in our online learning environment: we offer a type of blended learning where you are introduced to the course material at home, at your own pace.


    The study questions are characteristic of our teaching method. They help you study and - particularly - focus on what is most important. The questions guide you through the various chapters and help you study the course materials effectively.


    Our lecturers, who are experienced holistic physicians, enrich the studied material during class. Their practical teaching methods truly make the course material come alive with case studies, background information and practical examples.
