The 15-credit Post-Master’s Certificate in Clinical Herbalism 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 as they build their practice in their home location through an articulation agreement with the American Herbalists Guild (AHG), where they work closely with an AHG mentor to learn to conduct a comprehensive assessment and work cooperatively with clients to develop goals and an individualized health plan. Additionally, students see clients through group facilitation models and a case study course. The main emphasis of the program is on developing real world clinical competence. Topics such as ethics, business, and legal issues in clinical herbalism are explored in order to facilitate the transition from student to working professional.
Please note this program is only offered to for those who have a master’s degree and an herbal education equivalent to graduates of MUIH’s Master of Science in Therapeutic Herbalism program (January 2015 program and earlier). This program will be offered in Spring 2017 for the final time.
