Beginning this autumn, Apricot Grove is expanding its teaching program to include a two-year advanced clinical internship track. This program builds upon the extensive training provided in the Foundations Level I class, offering advanced studies in the clinical applications of Neijing Nature-Based Medicine.
The Advanced Training Level II program consists of a series of graded learning experiences that can be taken as standalone options or as the foundation for comprehensive certificate training. Students aiming for certificate training must successfully complete all advanced coursework, participate as clinical teaching assistants in a minimum of two Level I clinical practicums, act as mentors for Level I students, attend six advanced internship clinical training sessions, and complete either an advanced research project or an in-depth clinical case study. Advanced students are automatically enrolled in the Foundations Level I training to mentor first year students. Advanced interns also have the opportunity to serve as clinical mentors, guiding students at their clinical locations.
