Precepting with HMI at CSA Workshop in Chicago
In an effort to respond to the needs of HMI Students, I served as one of four senior faculty Preceptors, instructing 30 HMI Grads in techniques using Chinese Scalp Acupuncture in Chicago! It was a lively and productive workshop with plenty of hands-on training, and so glad that we had such an interactive dedicated class of students to work with. Thanks to Nick Kouchis, MD for all the behind-the-scenes coordination to make everything happen, as well as the support/ wise counsel from Dr. Joseph Helms MD.
"It is rare to find a doctor with the experience, compassion and wisdom that you will find in Dr. Tom Etges. I have used a number of acupuncturists for severe back pain and Dr. Etges is by far the best. His knowledge of medicine made it easy for him to understand the issues and support the work of my other medical providers."
