The course brings together professional practitioners of herbal medicine in the investigation and systematic appraisal of the knowledge base and clinical practice of herbal medicine. Contemporary practice is explored creatively and critically in the light of emerging conceptual frameworks and other influences on the current development of herbal medicine.
The goal is for students and tutors to both interpret knowledge judiciously and to solve clinical problems in a creative way, and, in so doing, play our part in the development of an epistemology of herbal medicine. A broad approach will be taken to clarify the relationship between the concept of health and the benefits of herbal practice. This learning will be contextualised within the wider provision of integrated medicine in the local, national and global environments of the students. Use of developing concepts in research in practitioner settings will be made to encourage students to develop the skills and personal qualities needed to be active researchers.

The MSc Chinese Herbal Medicine extends your acupuncture practice into the other of the major modalities of Chinese medicine. It is a theoretical and clinical professional entry-training. You will develop your diagnostic and case formulation skills and also learn the materia medica and formulae of Chinese herbal medicine. Phytochemistry and pharmacokinetics are integrated into the understanding of the energetic interactions of herbs. Extensive practice with patients will take place in our on-site teaching clinic where theory is deconstructed and applied. Working in the dispensary with raw herbs will develop your kinaesthetic skills to deepen understanding. The aim is that you learn how to modify classic formulae to create new formulae which address complex patterns of illness.

This course contextualises Chinese medicine within its historical roots, and grounds it in the legal, ethical and inter-professional framework of the UK.
