The Clinical Herbalism Certificate Program is designed for students who wish to develop skills in the practical application of Fundamental and Advanced Vitalist herbalism and nutrition, including interview and assessment procedures, case write-ups, safety and referral screening, scope of practice requirements and limitations, health and wellness education for clients, apothecary and herbal pharmacy skills, and student teaching. Clinical Herbalism students select a weekly four-hour shift in the Evergreen Center clinic, where they practice interviewing and writing up client cases. These anonymized cases are evaluated by faculty and fellow clinicians and discussed during regular Round Tables on Thursday evenings from 6-9 pm. In addition, clinicians work on educational literature, research and write a thesis, complete practica in clinic management and classroom teaching, and attend bi-monthly professional development seminars.
