Post-Master’s Certificate in Clinical Herbalism
The Post-Master’s Certificate in Clinical Herbalism program, beginning in 2013, provides graduates of the Master of Science in Therapeutic Herbalism program and other qualified applicants with the skills and knowledge to build a safe and effective clinical practice in herbalism. The curriculum educates students to apply a bio-psycho-social model of care to meet health and wellness goals. Students see clients in the Tai Sophia teaching clinic, learn to conduct a comprehensive assessment and work cooperatively with clients to develop goals and an individualized health plan. The main emphasis of the program is on developing real-world, clinical competence. Topics such as ethical, business and legal issues in clinical herbalism are explored in order to facilitate transition from student to working professional.
