Kampo Study Group Subscription

The High Desert Hari Society in collaboration with the New York Kampo Institute hosts a monthly virtual study group with Nigel Dawes on Kampo Medicine.  This monthly study group is a great opportunity to deepen and refine your knowledge of Kampo with real patient scenarios.  Each month we will focus on a different topic, wherein a case study or case studies will be solicited from the group and shared with all participants in advance of the scheduled study group for review prior to our meeting.

We will have the opportunity in each study group to have an in depth conversation about the topic and the case study/ies presented. Each study group will be led by Nigel and there will be plenty of time for questions, discussion and feedback. The study groups will be held monthly via Zoom Meeting (an online video/call-in meeting platform) and will run from 9-11pm Eastern Standard Time. 

All communication regarding the study groups will be through the Kampo Study Google Group.  The google group is a place for Nigel’s students to ask questions and exchange information between the monthly Zoom Meeting groups.  It is a place to interact with other students, follow up on patient progress after monthly meetings, have discussions about tricky patients and seek assistance as we continue to practice and learn the intricate art of diagnosis and prescription in Kampo. 

In order to participate in the Monthly Kampo Study Group meetings you must have taken a course from Nigel or be currently enrolled in a course with Nigel. 

Participation in the Monthly Kampo Study Group requires a subscription.
