- Having accurate knowledge of the human body and how it functions to be able to work effectively and confidently with other health care providers in various situations, from alternative holistic models to traditional medical models;
- Developing the necessary personal skills, including compassion, presence, communication, flexibility, dedication, creativity and self-awareness to work effectively with others and to achieve one’s own goals.
