The content that takes weeks to learn at once per week at RPG Research as a volunteer, you will learn in a single intensive day at RPG Therapeutics.
The content that takes months at RPG Research once per week, you can learn in a few intensive weeks.
However, learning through RPG Research gives you more hands-on experience and peer-review training over time.

All of our content at RPG Research is free and open to the public.

The live streams are all free and open during the broadcasts (between 3-10 per week). https://youtube.com/rpgresearch

We thank our Patreon -  https://patreon.com/rpgresearch  donors for their support by giving them access to the recorded broadcasts, our essays, etc., about a month before the general public.

Over time we release the lecture notes on these training sessions to our Patreon supporters soon.

We have a few workbooks and other books in the process developing toward publication.
