THE HERBAL CLINICIAN PROGRAM

Herbal medicine courses at Herbal Medics University are designed to give the maximum amount of information, hands-on experience and even clinical scenarios, in the shortest amount of time.

The concept is that we want to teach you the most necessary and crucial elements in regards to a materia medica (your personal list of herbs that you learn to use), preparations (tinctures, salves, syrups, etc.), a structure that is western-physiology based in order to create your own herbal formulas, medicinal plant identification and growing, ethical wildcrafting, diagnosis (assessment), creating a home or neighborhood clinic in a post-disaster setting, creating a treatment plan, and much more.

To this end, our herbology classes have a core set of classes, and elective modules.
