One year ago in 2020, I would have been in Tempe, AZ, teaching the second module in the year-long 300-hour course provided by Helms Medical Institute. In reviewing pictures from that time, it is hard to believe a year has gone by.
Thankfully owing to the magic of technology, the HMI course was able to begin this past weekend with a 3 day introduction to medical acupuncture, including didactic sessions, lectures and videos, small group breakout sessions, as well as Zoom supported group meetings with students starting their education in the art of medical acupuncture.
Thanks to an amazing support staff with HMI, known for its solid reputation and experience in education, the program was a rousing success. Despite a few glitches with technology owing to power outages around parts of the country because of winter weather, the course exceeded expectations. We look forward to our next installment later this Spring by continuing to provide educational platforms for residents, nurse practitioners, and physicians in training.
It is a blessing to be part of this wonderful program and it is with great gratitude that I remain active in a role of a senior Faculty Preceptor for HMI.
