With a new course format, complete 5.25 credit hours of comprehensive eLearning prior to arriving. Once you arrive on site for this intensive weekend course, you'll spend the bulk of the time doing hands-on practice in small groups with expert faculty leaders. You'll learn about each focused area via both hands-on live model scanning and cadaver needling as well as using meat phantom needling, clinical scenarios, and anatomy stations. As you rotate through the stations, you'll be able to practice on upper limb, lower limb, and chest and trunk areas. You'll be supported by world-renowned faculty sharing their knowledge and experience in a highly interactive, small group learning environment.

This course satisfies requirements for the ASRA-ASA UGRA Education and Clinical Training Portfolio.
