Acupuncture Relief Project volunteers participating in the Third World Medicine Immersion Program work six days a week not only providing care to patients but also participating in over 40 hours of continuing education focusing on improving their skills in case evaluation, treatment planning and patient progression.
Upon completion of their course, each practitioner presents a case study for peer review. These case studies help us analyze the efficacy of our clinic efforts and contribute to a body of evidence that supports our overall project model. We share them here to provide our community some insight into our work in advancing our medicine both at home and abroad.
