Course 8: Advanced Herbal Prescription Writing (44HR)


Mark Frost, MSTCM, L.Ac. joins Mayway in this 8-course series presenting the art of custom herbal prescription writing. Each course is approved for 2 CEUs/PDAs. This course covers the four essential skills necessary for practitioners to be able to write herbal prescriptions individually tailored to the needs of each patient. These include a review of patient interviewing skills, enhanced diagnostic evaluation, the necessity of a detailed treatment principle, and a revisiting of herb categories in order to clearly differentiate the unique applications of herbs within each category. The course will provide you with information you will use the very next day in your office. Most importantly you will learn new ways of seeing and thinking. Practice case studies for you to do outside of class will be provided with each module.

"I cannot teach you everything you need to know in three years, but I can teach you how to think and to learn from your patients. You should never stop learning." Dr. Yat Ki Lai, ACTCM Co-Founder.

Order the course set of 8 as a bundle, or purchase each course individually. Each course is approved for 2 continuing education credits.
