I decided to take Radka's course for many reasons, but the top reasons are:
- When I called to talk about the course, she took her time to talk to me. Our conversation was very easy-flowing (like two friends), and I truly felt like she will continue to be a mentor long after the course.
- Her own practice (beyond the school) involves the whole person... body, mind, and soul; and that is what I see in my future.
- Her's is a "suggested" three year program with the first year focusing on Anatomy, Physiology, and Chemistry... the basics. Many of the other courses I was looking at were trying to wedge these topics into their two year program, which made me wonder what they were "leaving out" to meet that timeline.
- I also didn't like how some of the other courses out there seem to be slanted towards vegetarianism; a bias my experiences don't share.
Most of my textbooks will be arriving from amazon the week of Sept. 8th, and the initial course modules should be in my possession one to two weeks after that. Exciting!
