    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.

    Why Western Medicine Fundamentals? 

    Why is this knowledge important and beneficial for you as a therapist or coach? The Medical Basic Knowledge education provides you with skills and advantages that are of great added value for you as a therapist or coach:

    After completing this course, you have extensive knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, and pathology. You understand the underlying issues that could be causing the symptoms encountered in your practice. You can identify red flags more quickly and know when it’s better to refer your client to someone else.

    Because Western Medicine Fundamentals also covers a portion of Psychosocial Basic Knowledge, you develop a holistic understanding of the individual and healthcare. Your understanding of the human body and psychological processes enables you to get to the core of the issue or problem more swiftly. This knowledge elevates your skills to a high professional standard, instills confidence in your actions, and helps you provide better care for your clients.

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.
