Moving with the Maestro: From Assessment to Independence

The goal of this course is to expose you to my thought processes and introduce you to the system that I use to assess and treat patients. This course is about sharing what I consider to be the best, and most universally applicable points from the courses I’ve taken, the books I’ve read, the patients I’ve treated, and the discussions I’ve had with good friends. I’ve borrowed the best from the best, mixed in my own flavor, and packaged it all into this course. This course is by no means exhaustive. It is by no means the be-all, end-all. It’s simply a kaleidoscope of concepts that want to pass on to you, so that you can turn the dial, create your scene, and be able to help whoever may be standing in front of you.
