Better to save time and money and fulfill your 4 hours of ethics or safety online. Plus, this course is very interesting and relevant for clinical practice if you treat pregnant women.

Excellent course. Clear, concise. Claudia is a very engaging speaker. It's wonderful to have access to her knowledge and expertise from the other side of the world. Many Thanks! ~ Nadine

A fantastic course with some great insight from a senior clinician. Nothing better than proven results. ~Steven

WOW! I loved how Heather focused right in on "Rescuing the Yang" and hit her points again and again from different angles, aspects, and personal case studies. She was really clear and I ended up with lots to think about and some basic techniques to begin using. I've been talking about what I learned this last week to anyone who will listen - many of them not involved in Chinese Medicine at all! ~Monna

Don’s 4 CEU/PDA/CPD online course on Electroacupcture (EA) was so well received and many of you asked for more on treating specific conditions and case studies.

It was required there, as it should be in any acupuncture training. Took this one due Don Lee's good rep and clinical experience and for a brush up and wasn't disappointed. Re-inspired me regarding estim. Don keeps things in depth and simple at the same time. Immediately clinically useful. ~Donna

7. Introducing Functional Medicine into Your Acupuncture Clinic by Dan Kalish

I found this course to be so beneficial and forward thinking that I personally signed up for Dan Kalish’s 6 month intensive functional medicine program offered through the Kalish Institute. My patients are loving the value added services (functional medicine) I offer now with my TCM treatments and my busier schedule is a testament that investing in oneself (and in the right areas) can pay off very quickly. If you are interested in Functional Medicine then you would benefit from taking this class created for acupuncturists.

Dr. Dan Kalish is a wealth of knowledge coming from years of experience. He has developed a simple and clear system to help almost every patient who walks in your office. ~Autumn

Such an amazing course! Dr Kalish knows his subject so well, and is so great at communicating it - which is super important. It was all clinically relevant, and I left with things that I can start applying tomorrow. He was also great about answering questions and doing review. I would definitely recommend this course, and I look forward to more with him. ~Elizabeth

8. Addressing Fertility Issues in Women of Advanced Maternal Age by Randine Lewis

This course meets the public demand for treating infertility where IVF is no longer the ideal choice. If you want to be of service to women over 35 and be in demand by women not interested in IVF then you must be knowledgeable in treating women of advanced maternal age, repeated IVF failures and with low ovarian reserves.

One of the best courses I have taken. This information really helped me to understand the sometimes subtle, and sometimes obvious differences in working with women of advanced maternal age. Randine is an amazing and inspiring teacher. ~Julie

Randine was amazing. She really shook things up for me - I feel like I've been approaching my infertility treatments completely wrong, and I'm excited to go back to work and start practicing what I've learned! ~Lisa

Fantastic course! ~ Jana

12. Extend/reactivate a course

Although "extend/reactivate" is not a course it was the 12th most popular request in 2014. Pro D Seminars changed its access policy in January 2014 from 6 months to 2 years. So any course you register starting January 29, 2014 automatically offers you 2 years to complete for CEU/PDA/CPD and longer for continued review. This option allows you to reactivate a course that you purchased before 2014 so you can have an additional 2 years access to complete for CEU/PDA/CPD or to just watch again and have it remain in your account for continued review. Click here for details on how to extend or reactivate a course you had registered between Jan 2012 to Jan 2014. Remember courses you registered for after jan 2014 are under this new policy so there would be no need extend or reactivate now.

Another popular course to meet ethics/professional issue CEU/PDA/CPD for NCCAOM, British Columbia (CTCMA), Australia (AACMA) and Texas. The feedback was excellent. Many were pleasantly surprised that this mandatory course was actually interesting and enjoyable to watch.

This was an EXCELLENT course! I would highly recommend it to my colleagues. I love the spiritual approach Michael Gaeta brings to an otherwise dry and daunting subject of ethics. There were many pearls in this course. It has prompted lots of self-reflection, given me validation in areas I feel I am already doing very well in, and given me suggestions as to which areas I might look a bit more closely at and improve in. Thank you for this wonderful class! ~ Angie

Excellent class. I was not bored to tears and so glad it was not a yawnfest! I would highly recommend his class for anyone having to fulfill this requirement. I took away many great things from this class and there were great reaffirmations of what I was already doing. ~ EngKeat

16. The Treatment of Knotty Diseases: How Effective Use of Classic Formulas can Transform your Clinic and Practice by Sharon Weizenbaum

If you use herbs in your practice then this is a must watch. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced herbalist this course will benefit you.

This course furthers a deeper understanding of the logic behind combining and modifying classical formulas in a way that is highly practical. ~ Gary

This is the best Pro D course I have ever taken. Sharon is a phenomenal teacher-unparalleled. ~ Gabriella

This course was stunning! Sharon's use of analogy and case history made the material easy to understand and assimilate

This course brought to life and deepened my understanding of how to apply herbal formulas to my patients with more complex conditions. Sharon is an excellent and generous teacher.

The course content exceeded my expectations - and I was expecting a literate and revealing explanation of herbs. What I didn't realize was how much content would be foundational theory and a deeper and more organic explanation of how Oriental Medicine actually works.
