🌟 Sneak peek of the final version of our Diagnosis Deck!

Hi friends!

As we've been fine-tuning the Diagnosis Deck, our team has been exploring ways to maximize its utility for our friends. Initially, our plan was to focus solely on highlighting the key characteristics of each pattern. However, as I reflected on my own experience preparing for the Diplomate in Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) exams - which cover Foundations of Oriental Medicine, Chinese Herbology, Acupuncture with Point Location, and BioMed - I realized the immense value of having comprehensive information readily accessible. Having the differential diagnosis information, acupuncture points, and herbal formulas all in one place proved incredibly beneficial, not just for the Foundations of Oriental Medicine exam, but also for preparing for Chinese Herbology and Acupuncture with Point Location. This realization led us to include acupuncture points and herbal formulas alongside the key characteristics of each pattern.

Our Diagnosis Deck is filled with features carefully designed to boost your TCM studies, help you prepare for exams, and excel in your clinical practice!

So here's a sneak peek of the final version of our Diagnosis Deck:

Front Side Features:

• Main Symptom
• Cute Memory anchor image
• Boncho Icons
• Differential pattern name

Back Side features comprehensive differential patterns analysis!

• Key differential characteristics

•General pattern symptoms

• Boncho Icons

• Tongue and pulse icons

• Acupuncture Points

***We've included acupuncture points and herbal formulas for each pattern! These additions are geared towards helping students pass the board exam and giving practitioners the confidence they need when treating patients.
