Preview for Those Who Wish to Join

Through observation and testing, we discovered that it takes a minimum of nine months for Chinese Medicine practitioners to attain a firm command of the DNA and MPD® methods.

During the learning phase, to ensure exceptional clinical results, it is essential that you use these methods ONLY without incorporating other techniques (e.g., scholastic TCM) The time you invest in your studies at and during live sessions can save you decades of clinic experimentation and ineffective patients results.

Develop the important habit of viewing Office Episodes each week (emailed to you). This weekly reinforcement of clinically relevant information prepares you for a successful week of maximal results for your patients.

Stay connected with other passionate health practitioners that practice the DNA and MPD® methods worldwide! Connect with like-minded colleagues on the Doane Online School exclusive blog and Facebook group- to ask questions or exchange ideas.
