The Last Eight Day PLAR Case Study Workshops

The last eight day PLAR Clinical Case Study Workshops have ended on February 27. All the workshops were facilitated and taught by Mary Wu, the president, instructor, and clinical director of TSTCM, who has over 20 years of clinical, teaching, exam preparation and writing experience in US and Canada.

Here is what the participants said:

Dear Mary:

I would like to thank you for your time, dedication, and commitment that you provided on the PLAR 8 day workshop in February. Educators like you, in the field of TCM are hard to find.  I feel very fortunate to have found you. I feel much more confident and prepared to write the upcoming exam with the college. (CTCMPAO)

Thank you once again for your enthusiasm, and shared knowledge.  I really can't thank you enough.                                                                               -Jane

The series of case-study workshops, offered by the Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2017, was exceptional in its content and presentation. The level of education and in-depth analysis training was thorough and well-executed. A variety of common diseases and health conditions were presented and analyzed, in a manner so as to further enhance the participants'  knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis, treatment principles and treatment techniques.  Various learning methods were employed to engage the participants' existing TCM knowledge and further expand their TCM foundation.


Thanks Mary for your knowledge and your concern for all of us, your kindness n your getting up at 4.00 AM preparing for our class, has certainly paid off in my case, you simplified so much information. Thanks Again

Hi Mary,
Thank you so much for your teaching and your insight. Your method of teaching for PLAR not only helped me review, but gave me a method for evaluating case studies. It was well worth my time and money.

Really appreciate your time, very special way to make a TCM theory alive, ability in simple way to show a clear connection in development of illnesses.

          Thank you for great case study workshop

Hi Mary,
I just wanted to write and say thank you for an awesome case study workshop.  You helped clearly bridge any gaps that I had in working through cases that may be required for any sort of exam preparation.  That was much appreciated. 

I appreciated all your hard work and preparation with the workshop, the guidance, and the proficiency training/review.  It was well targeted to every day clinical practice needs.

Great job!
