Holistic Anatomy & Physiology with Pip Waller

The Holistic Anatomy 90 hour certificated course is in two parts:

October 25-27, 2017 and

January 10-12, 2018

You must come to both parts of the course as they are designed to work together.

The venue is in Llangollen in Denbighshire North Wales, nearest train station Ruabon.

If you want to complete the full course and get a certificate you need to not only come to the two long weekends but also complete around 50 hours of written work at home, at the end of which you are sent an open book exam paper which is designed so you can demonstrate your understanding – but you don't need to memorise lots of things, you can look things up to help you in your answers.

When this is marked you receive your certificate. If you don't get things right enough the first time, you will receive detailed feedback about where to work, and can have another go.

For the full course including certificate the cost is £450

If you don't need a certificate but still want to do the homework and have it marked, the cost is £425

To do the two parts but NOT the homework (therefore no 90 hour certificate, though you can have a certificate of attendance) it's £350

A £250 deposit secures your place, the balance to be paid either at part 1 or split between parts 1 and 2. Other options of payment will be considered.

Aims of the course

The overall aim is to present the course in a creative and dynamic way, responding to individual needs of the students and group and continually grounding the anatomy, physiology and pathology knowledge into usefulness in practice.

The aim is for you to finish the course with a good practical understanding of the structure and function of each of the body systems and how they interrelate, as well as receiving an introduction to the Western approach to pathology.

The draft course outline is below – we will be likely to cover all the subjects listed, plus some more, but not necessarily on the day/in the order they appear below! Each course is structured according to the needs of the particular group. The main thing is, let’s have fun!
