Anyone who chooses to specialize in reproductive medicine as an EAM practitioner knows that you rarely go it alone.  In fact, the vast majority of patients in our care are also under the care of western doctors, and many employ multiple modalities in their pursuit of a viable pregnancy. The end result of this is a deep need for EAM practitioners to have fluency in both western and other adjunctive care, and to be able to fluidly transpose their diagnoses between allopathic and holistic modalities.  Furthermore, understanding how to integrate nutrition, supplementation, and mind/body support into a patient’s protocol allows for the EAM practitioner to wear all of the non-allopathic hats. This provides a continuity of care that offers better outcomes and deeper patient relationships.

Through this mentorship, participants will gain confidence and deep insight into both eastern and western approaches to the treatment of infertility, with an emphasis on integrating holistic and allopathic modalities.  Through a combination of live webinars, Q&A sessions, office hours, and private tutoring (one session is included in the program), practitioners will come away with a deeper understanding of all aspects of reproductive medicine and will be well prepared to sit for the ABORM exam, if desired.

In addition to the modules, participants will have access to Laura via weekly office hours, roundtable discussions with some luminaries from our field, bonus  Q&A sessions, and 1:1 support and tutoring at a member-only discounted rate. ABORM Exam study groups will be created as desired, and group tutoring sessions for the exam will be available.

The focus of the mentorship is deep experiential learning, and peer connection. Although maximizing the quantity of CEU/PDAs will not be a focus, we have made available a maximum of 42 CEU/PDAs you can earn during the nine-month program.

Acupuncture Regulatory bodies our CEU/PDA certificates will fulfill:

  • California
  • Florida
  • Texas
  • ABORM Exam
  • ABORM Renewal
