Herbal Medicine

The focus of this course is on furthering the student's growth as a scholar practitioner, and enabling them to develop as a leader in research, clinical governance and policy and practice within the herbal medicine profession, while advancing their own professional practice. The underpinning ethos is to equip students with the knowledge, skills and practical experience to enhance their professional role in the field of herbal medicine. This is fostered through the academic and professional experience in both the theoretical concepts and the diagnostic practice within their own specialty.
