ABOUT THE PROGRAM | The Advanced Herbalism Certificate Program courses are taught in unified modules of closely related material. In a clinical setting, the herbalist must pull together material from basic anatomy and physiology, pathology, herbal Materia Medica, therapeutic strategies, clinical nutrition, pharmacology, and interview skills; so each module in the program teaches these all together, in an integrated way, as is appropriate for the focus area of the module. One module is completed before a more advanced one is begun, except that modules of closely related material are taught simultaneously.
