Chinese Obstetrics – Basic Course
For midwives, doctors, and obstetricians we offer an annual basic course. Supplementing our program are advanced courses, regularly offered for you to freshen up on and enhance your theoretical knowledge and practical skills.
The course is mindful of and highly values the diversity of Chinese medicine – it doesn’t just teach acupuncture points in obstetrics, but also lifestyle, nutrition, and Taoist life philosophy by exploring select Chinese medical resources. The wealth of experience in Chinese medicine as well as its observational powers of diagnosis facilitate the effective support of mothers-to-be and individualized therapeutic assistance. Lesson content and practical case studies are geared to the everyday working lives of both self-employed midwives and those employed at hospitals.
This course meets DHV guidelines.

Learning as a Class and in Small Groups
This approach to teaching offers a lot of space for individual experience and allows us to address current needs as they arise. Though we cover comparatively few acupuncture points (32), this course is less about schematic acupuncture than the ability to learn to “think Chinese” and make diagnoses with a deep understanding of the points. Our graduates know why they use a certain point in a specific situation. We really value careful localization and correctly needling the points, so we offer a comprehensive practical class in small groups with double the faculty.
Our model of interdisciplinary collaboration between faculty utilizes the strengths of each occupational category: healer, midwife, sinologist. Regular quizzes at the beginning as well as homework help provide students with solid theoretical and practical savvy. Through group work, student presentations, and close collaboration we ensure the high learning achievement, excellent satisfaction levels, and security of our graduates.
Following the basic course, regular advanced courses are offered.
This course is reserved for midwives, obstetricians, and doctors.
