Course Directors’ Information

We’ve created this page for you so that course information and materials you might need are always easily accessible. But we are also always available to help you, so if you have questions or can’t find what you need, please call Evangeline Andarsio, M.D., at (937) 245-7450 x 2, or email


Course evaluations are needed from all schools that offer The Healer’s Art Course. It is very important for research and tracking reasons that we continue to obtain hard copies of all paper evaluations from the schools. We will provide the service of summarizing the evaluations for you if your administrative staff is unable to generate a summary report. Also, evaluations are key to keeping track of which of our newly trained schools have implemented/maintained the course at their school, and we can offer support to any challenges you may have as a new course director. Our goal in facilitating evaluation reporting in years past has always been to support the implementation and excellence of The Healer’s Art at each of our schools. Once we receive the evaluations, we will be in touch with you to review your evaluations and discuss any questions or concerns you might have in regard to your Healer’s Art Course.

These evaluations are extremely important to us so we ask that you have your students fill out this evaluation on the last day of class. Also, we ask that each of your faculty members fill out the Faculty Evaluation below. In the past we attempted the use of a digital survey however, the response rate was so low that we needed to go back to hard copy paper evaluations, which have a much higher response rate.

If you opt to compile your own yearly summaries, we ask you to send us a copy once completed. Please send your final evaluation summary report to Evangeline Andarsio, M.D., at

After The Healer’s Art Course ends…

When your course is over, do your students ask you how they can continue to meet and explore the heart of their work?
