Program description

Awarded by: Open University Validating Partnership

*This course is Subject to Validation

The course provides a comprehensive education and training in the principles and practice of herbal medicine. This incorporates the ‘energetic’ understanding of the cause of illness and the therapeutic actions of medicinal plants as well as the orthodox disciplines of Anatomy, Physiology, Pathophysiology and Nutrition. It is integrative in approach, linking traditional herbal medicine with modern science and holism.
Our teaching methods include a rich mixture of theoretical study, reflection, the use of intuition and practical experience including professional practice in our on-site Complementary Medicine Clinic. Our aim is to ensure that you become a competent and confident practitioner of herbal medicine.
The course is delivered by block learning, which means that the attendance requirements for the academic modules are met through eight full three day weekends per year, plus attendance at the Complementary Medicine Clinic for clinical training.
• Year One of the course requires 90 hours of clinical training, (achieved during term time, either 1 day per fortnight or in blocks)
• Year Two requires 190 hours and Year Three requires 210 hours (roughly 1 day per week or the equivalent). There are a variety of ways in which this attendance can be achieved.
The course is accredited by the EHTPA (the European Herbal and Traditional Practitioners Association) and graduates are eligible to become members of NIMH (the National Institute of Medical Herbalists) or other professional bodies of medical herbalists.
