Clinical Skills III:

Case Analysis in the Vitalist Tradition


In this third course in our Advanced Clinical Skills sequence, we describe processes to synthesize the material gathered during the interview, to assess the contributions of nutrient deficiencies to the presenting symptoms, and to use pattern recognition in the presentation and the history to proceed to a treatment plan.



With this course you receive 3 hours of audio files for the lessons, with supplementary notes, readings, and intake forms to assist with case analysis. The course comes with a Study Guide and Continuing Education questions. Students enrolled in our courses are also eligible for a 10% discount on purchases at Mountain Rose Herbs.

Lesson 3  Sorting the Symptoms

Lesson 4  Patterns and Diet
