Before starting on a general strength training program, you should rehabilitate the shoulder. A lot of pushing exercises can exacerbate an injured shoulder. Use pain as your guide of what to avoid.
I assume this ND attempted to give you a shoulder exercise therapy rehab protocol or refer you to someone who could? If not you should call him up and ask for this since any medicine should include both diagnosis and treatment.
Once you are better, all you really need to do are basic compound upper body exercises like chest presses/push ups, shoulder presses, and tricep work (actually isolation work, not compound, but important for climbers imo). Very straight forward and easy to find if you search online.
