Program curriculum of the AQPMO

Several course levels are taught by the AQPMO. Please take the time to carefully choose your courses according to the teacher(s) and the location. The Clinical Integration course is taught over 4 days whereas the Level 2 Quadrants are 12 days long. Level 3 courses are now taught over 9 days. Therefore, watching the theoretical videos is required to insure all the course objectives can be achieved.
