CLINICAL SKILLS AND PRACTICUM
The CLINICAL SKILLS AND PRACTICUM is a pivotal and exciting time in a student’s career. You’re finally putting all the theory learned during those arduous hours on the computer into practice.
You will also start to learn and sharpen your clinical skills.
What is a clinical practicum?
The clinical practicum can be broken down into two parts: direct clinical observation and direct clinical experience.
What is Direct Clinical Observation?
All students are required to complete a number of hours in clinical training, supervised by a qualified and experienced Naturopath or other natural medicine health professional.
This module is to spend 50 hours at the Da Vinci Holistic Health Center in Larnaca, Cyprus seeing live patients in a clinical setting.
The student will sit in the center with their supervisor and observe, take notes, ask questions, and observe the operation of various diagnostic and healing modalities. This learning experience is next to none for quickly gaining the clinical tools and learning protocols to begin implementing in your own clinical practice.
What is Direct Clinical Experience?
With direct clinical experience students spend time either with their supervisor or alone learning hands-on skills in diagnosing and implementing bespoke treatment programmes based on the information elicited from the patient.
Initially, the student will act as the patient and the IDEL Diagnostic Programme will be implemented on themselves by their supervisor.
This is an excellent way of working systematically to understand the underlying causative factors.
This type of holistic diagnostics is quite rare in many clinical settings around the world, so you will be fortunate to absorb a rich knowledge base for identifying underlying causative factors as well as the pathogenesis of the disease.
It has taken many years to develop the IDEL Diagnostic Programme for doing all this and more – IDEL is the acronym for ‘Identify’ and ‘Eliminate.’
Without removing the root causes it is literally impossible to cure chronic diseases. The only thing that will happen is that one symptom will be suppressed while another one appears – this is the progression of chronic disease.
When do I start the clinical practicum?
At any time, but this must be scheduled with the Da Vinci Center ahead of time.
