Clinic Presentations

This page lists all of the Clinic presentations, handouts, and links to other web sites that are available. More will be added over the next while as they are received, so check back later. Once it seems that we have all that we will get, an email message will go out to that effect. Both Rail and Non-rail Clinics are included.

You can change the sort order to either the Clinician's name or the Clinic Title by selecting from the drop-down box and then clicking "Apply".

Some large files have been added using a web based link and they include the file size as part of the name so that you can judge if these are too big for you to download.

(Note that due to a weird bug, clinics that have more than one associated file are listed multiple times.)

Updates:
September 25, 2015 - Added Decker Handout
September 22, 2015 - Added Decker and Sedaker
