The Field Control Therapy® (FCT) Curriculum
Two Classes of Student
Seminars with Dr Yurkovsky
The Graduate Programme
There are two classes of FCT student:
(a) Educational Experience: This is for those with an interest in fundamental health issues which affect us all, and in hearing the cutting-edge insights of one of the world's foremost pioneers of energy medicine, homeopathy, bio-resonance and healing.
For these students, every part of the FCT curriculum - from only 3 days up to a whole year - will be of equal relevance and interest. Many healthcare practitioners and healers attend introductory (and also advanced) FCT seminars for the immense general educational (and financial) benefit of learning all the ways in which medicine and society have gone wrong, and how to put it right.
(b) Professional Ambition: This is for those who would like to take it even further and learn to practise FCT. Whether or not you take it to this step, the FCT curriculum is of fundamental relevance and importance to us all. However, if you then take up a serious interest in practising FCT as well, then there is an extended programme to facilitate this.

The FCT curriculum is organised by FCT World and consists of two inter-related parts:
(1) Seminars with Dr Yurkovsky
(2) The Graduate Programme with a team of FCT tutors, culminating in full practical competence and examination.
Altogether, this comprises part-time study of about a year to eighteen months in length, including extensive home study and practice.

(1) Seminars with Dr Yurkovsky
All new FCT students should begin by studying the FCT syllabus with Dr Yurkovsky at one of his periodic Basic Level seminars (3 days in length). This is then followed by the Advanced Level seminar (also 3 days in length).
Alternatively, or in addition, all prospective students are encouraged to obtain the quality DVD box-sets of Dr Yurkovsky's Basic and Advanced Level seminars as recorded live in Dublin in 2004 and 2005, as these have been prepared as a complete home-study course of the FCT introductory syllabus, and DVD students have reported that they serve that purpose extremely well, especially as this allows repeated viewing of the fascinating and educational material presented.
You can view leaflets announcing past or future seminars (dates, costs and other details) here.
A very detailed synopsis of the contents of both the Basic Level Seminar and the Advanced Level Seminar can also be read here (open the pdf files on this video order form). This form can also be used to order the DVD box-sets for students in the USA or any other NTSC country. For students in Europe or any other PAL region, however, the DVD box-sets are available through FCT Europe.
Dr Yurkovsky's overview of the FCT curriculum can be read here (then click on the links which follow).
Common Query : Is It Better To Study At a Seminar or by DVD?
Many people ask whether it is better to start studying at a live seminar or via the DVD home study courses. The answer is that either or both are good, and it depends on your personal preferences.
A high percentage of students at live seminars have always then also purchased the DVD sets, as they are permitted to do so at a discount at seminars, and this allows them repeated home viewing of the fascinating material at their own pace. I have myself attended the Basic Level seminar numerous times, and viewed the DVDs of it numerous times, and still I look forward to each new DVD viewing or seminar, as there is such a wealth of inspiring material that I always learn new things each time!
On the other hand, DVD students can then also attend seminars at a discount if they wish to review the material and at the same time meet Dr Yurkovsky, meet other students, ask questions live, etc. Furthermore, every seminar is unique, even if covering the same curriculum, because Dr Yurkovsky always tests different patients, answers different queries and discusses different issues.
Finally, the DVD sets are important during periods when live seminars are not offered - as in Europe, for example, Dr Yurkovsky offers seminars only periodically when he can make time in his tight NY schedule to make the trip.

(2) The Graduate Programme
Following study with Dr Yurkovsky at his FCT seminars, or alternatively in parallel, the FCT Graduate Programme is available for enthusiastic students via a series of weekends presented by FCT World, through a team of tutors co-ordinated by Simon Rees in Ireland.
This was offered for the first time in 2005-6 in Dublin, Ireland, by Simon Rees and Kevin Eakins, in response to popular demand, and in close co-ordination with Dr Yurkovsky's input and assistance. An extended post-seminar programme thus evolved in order to provide a full course in how to put Dr Yurkovsky's FCT syllabus into practice effectively.
The last graduate programme consisted of 5 three-day modules (long weekends) over the course of about a year, including written and practical assessments on the 5th module, together with extensive hands-on assistance, supervision in taking clinical cases, and finally it culminated in an Advanced Clinical Experience seminar with Dr Yurkovsky and then a practitioner's diploma certification. (N.B: In case a particular student wishes to study the different parts of the training in a different sequence, this is fine too, e.g. there are some students who are studying all three seminars with Dr Yurkovsky prior to starting the Graduate Programme and that also works well). The next graduate programme will be similar, but we are currently expanding and re-structuring the course to make it even better, so some of the above details and may change.
The first programme was so well received that FCT World chose to offer it again on a periodic basis, for new generations of FCT students. Since then, we have been scheduling a new Graduate Programme once every two years.
The next scheduled programme will take place in 2010-2011, with two parallel students groups - one for the European track taking place entirely in Ireland and Britain, and one for the North American track taking place entirely in the USA.
A new "distance track" option will also be offered for international students in other locations, as we have videoed key events and are currently producing a series of DVDs and other home study materials ready for the next programme.
Details about the graduate programme are available here.
Anyone who wishes to practise FCT is highly recommended to undertake the FCT Graduate Programme, which was designed specifically for enabling this - taking each student, at whatever entrance level, all the way from the "ABCs" of FCT theory and clinical practice all the way up to mastery at a high level of skill, understanding and clinical acumen.

The FCT programme is a post-graduate course for people who already have a primary training in another healthcare discipline which includes anatomy and physiology to at least an industry-standard level, comparable to other serious complementary healthcare disciplines. The majority of students are healthcare professionals who come to FCT with a full training already in another form of healthcare, whether conventional or alternative. This has included doctors, dentists, nurses, homeopaths, kinesiologists, craniosacral therapists, naturopaths, osteopaths, chiropractors, bio-resonance testers, acupuncturists, herbalists, nutritionists, psychotherapists and many other healthcare professionals.
If you do not have this background, but would still be interested in studying FCT, you can still do so, provided (a) you have a strong interest in the subject matter and, in the case that you would like to practise FCT, are willing to put a lot of study and practice in; & (b) you separately enlist, either prior or in parallel, in a basic medical training in anatomy and physiology. An example of a minimum acceptable level of study would be the ITEC certificate in anatomy and physiology, as this is a level of knowledge broadly respected in the complementary medicine field, and used in diploma courses in other comparable disciplines such as homeopathy, acupuncture or craniosacral therapy.
In addition, if you have previously studied any form of homeopathy, applied kinesiology, naturopathy, energy medicine, toxicology, systems theory or quantum physics, then this will certainly help prepare you for your FCT studies. However, it is not necessary to have any prior training in any of these areas, and in fact in some cases it can be a hindrance, if the student already has fixed views which are not open to re-evaluation. The most essential pre-requisite of all is therefore a desire to learn and an open-ness to considering new ideas.
