The Bachelor of Naturopathic and Herbal Medicine combines the skills of phenomenology (the study of experience, deep observation and consciousness of the human condition learned over centuries) with modern day science, to bring the best in complementary medicine.
In the first two years of study you will gain an extensive knowledge in a variety of health sciences including anatomy and physiology, chemistry, biochemistry, pathophysiology, microbiology, pharmacology and health assessment. Students will gain an understanding of research methods and the application of research to clinical practice while maintaining the core philosophy that underpins natural medicine.
A wide range of natural therapies are studied in-depth including nutrition, herbal medicine, massage and aromatherapy, all from a sound philosophical framework and research base.
You are trained in full health assessment that includes physical assessment, laboratory and functional medicine tests. In the final year your previous learning is applied in a clinical setting under the supervision of the clinical supervisors in one-to-one sessions with clients.
In preparation for clinical practice, you will develop a business plan in your final year.
