    Download our study brochure

    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.

     

    The Western Medicine Fundamentals
    programme consists of:

    – 12 interactive course days (online via Zoom)
    – an independent study at home in the online learning environment with the help of course materials and homework assignments

    The Western Medicine Fundamentals consists of 1395 (study) hours, corresponding to 50 ECTS. If you want to learn all about the course, we recommend to download our study guide.

    Reviews from our students who enrolled last year

    Students who have enrolled in our Western Medicine Fundamentals programme last year rate the course with a 9,1.

    “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
