Hybrid / distance learning option, but with in-person clinical and practical block.
London Course Confirmed! Payment plan available.
September start and February clinics in London - enrolment is now full. Enrol by December for a JANUARY start with Clinics in London in June / July. Course runs from Jan to September 2024. (scroll to end for in depth content info)
This is a hybrid / online / distance learning option.
All your lectures are pre-recorded, with lots of additional evidence, articles, videos, and other resources online. You are guided through these over the course of one academic year, through 9 one-hour live broadcast tutorials, where you can ask questions and get guidance etc.
You follow tasks online, and then you can attend in one block an in-person technique and clinical intensive. In year one there are 6 days, 3 for techniques and assessment routines, and 3 days in clinic, where you get hands on and are guided in clinical approaches for a variety of women's health patients, who volunteer to participate. In year two there are 10 days of clinical / practicals in a single block (or 2 5-day blocks) as this allows for additional training in complex pelvic floor, pelvic pain, pelvic organ and internals work, and evaluation of prolapse and post partum issues.
All the lectures are done by Caroline, and caroline supervises in person, all the clinical and practical days - and the group sizes are capped at 6 students per block - so there is a great tutor-student ratio ensuring you get lots of personalised instruction and lots of direct supervision and help.
