Course of training

The seven didactic dimensions

Didactics is the art of teaching. For you, we have contributed to build an original and unique didactic concept, 7DD®, and we have engaged in its implementation for MedVaidya. The founding idea is that the student is -not only- at the centre of the concerns, but is one of the intrinsic dimensions of the method. In other words, as a new MedVaidya student, you will not find yourself lost, like so many first-year students in their new cycle of study, but taken as an essential element, almost the central cog of the methodology. You will therefore be an actor, but you will never be alone. You will be attractive, proactive and interactive. This is your guarantee of success.
