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.

Acupuncture is now well known as a system of medicine that involves the insertion of needles to specific points on the body. However, traditional practice also utilises other techniques such as moxibustion and cupping. The Chinese word for acupuncture is zhenjiu; literally needle and moxibustion. It originated In China around three thousand years ago and soon spread to other countries in Asia such as Japan and Korea. Acupuncture is now widely used around the world.

Informational Energy Osteopathy is the therapeutic approach to the movement of the manual treatment approach proposed by Raimund Maurice Poyet, who noted in his clinical practice, the importance of incorporating therapeutic intent in the act to the detriment of the applied force, being the pressure required to trigger the movement that a butterfly would land on a leaf. From this premise and a detailed observation of the body, behavior and distribution and operation of certain reflex zones, developed a personal working method that spread throughout his life: the Method Poyet.

This method is based on the primary respiratory motion (MRP), taking as origin the synchondrosis spheno (SEB), spread to every structure and tissue through the fascial or connective system. For any MRP dysfunction is altered, so the first step in balancing tissue from the perspective of Poyet, is to approximate it.

An identifying feature of the method Poyet is the use of cranial somatotopías to diagnose and verify the post-treatment. That is, the existence of reflex points located on the bones of the skull and face, where are represented all regions of the body.

French physiotherapist Françoise Mézières developed an innovative method to treat body imbalances. She invented postural re-education and was a trailblazer for global therapy methods in Europe. The Mézières Method has continued to develop since then, incorporating the scientific advances of recent years without sacrificing its essence or originality.

Body mechanics hinges on the interplay of the various myofascial chains. Nevertheless, our static posture is determined by many factors, including genetics, psychobehavioural and emotional aspects, trauma, etc. These influences, together with a person's daily habits, cause changes in static posture and imbalances in the myofascial chains, which in turn give rise to dysfunctions and pathologies.

With this in mind, global physiotherapy aims to restore balance to the various myofascial chains through a personalised programme. The Mézièrist physiotherapist treats imbalances by rooting out the primary cause of an injury, correcting and monitoring the various compensatory mechanisms seen over the course of the session.

Acupuncture holds a unique position in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) because it is, primarily, a preventive technique, i.e. it is used to maintain health rather than treat pathological symptoms. It can also have a large impact on functional pathologies; its only limits are in treating lesions.

In the course proposed, we will study:

-Energetic anatomy, the 12 meridians or energy channels, as well as the role of their control points according to three large functional energetic levels.
-Energetic physiology as traditionally described in reference works, as well as the great symbols of ancient traditional Chinese culture and thought.

The Narrative Medicine master's program seeks to strengthen the overarching goals of medicine, public health, and social justice, as well as the intimate, interpersonal experiences of the clinical encounter. The program fulfills these objectives by educating a leadership corps of health professionals and scholars from the humanities and social sciences who will imbue patient care and professional education with the skills and values of narrative understanding.
Health care and the illness experience are marked by uneasy and costly divides: between those in need who can access care and those who cannot, between health care professionals and patients, and between and among health care professionals themselves. Narrative medicine is an interdisciplinary field that challenges those divisions and seeks to bridge those divides. It addresses the need of patients and caregivers to voice their experience, to be heard and to be valued, and it acknowledges the power of narrative to change the way care is given and received.

Program structure

The Narrative Medicine graduate degree requires 38 points to complete. Those studying full-time can complete the program in one academic year plus the following summer, and for a few students, in one academic year. Students electing to study on a part-time basis can complete the degree in two years. The part-time option is designed to accommodate the professional obligations of students who are employed. This is a rigorous and concentrated program that demands a serious commitment of time and energy. Students are expected to devote significant time to completing reading assignments, class assignments, and term projects outside of class.
Degree requirements include the five Core Courses in Narrative Medicine (22 points) and the Research Methodology course (4 points), which is required for all students who have not taken a graduate-level course in research methodology, with a focus on qualitative research and/or evaluative research. The remaining 12 to 16 points may include any combination of (1) additional Topics in Narrative Medicine courses; (2) elective courses chosen from other departments (up to six points: note that many graduate courses in other departments are three points each); Independent Study (one to four points) and/or (4) a Capstone (two to four points).
The core curriculum of this pioneering M.S. in Narrative Medicine combines intensive exposure to narrative writing and close reading skills, literary and philosophical analysis, and experiential work, with the opportunity to apply this learning in clinical and educational settings. Core courses provide the conceptual grounding for work in narrative medicine, and introduce the direct practice of teaching narrative competence to others. Students combine core curriculum work with more focused study of important and current topics in the field. Focused seminars draw on the resources of more than one discipline. Courses rotate to reflect the current concerns, methodologies, and analytic approaches of narrative scholars and practitioners. To allow students to individualize their professional education in narrative medicine, they may choose electives from among a wide range of offerings at the University, with advice and approval of the faculty adviser. Electives enable students to gain knowledge in academic disciplines they wish to pursue (e.g., medical anthropology) or in subject areas of special professional interest (e.g. aging).The optional Capstone Project offers a wide range of opportunities for supervised or mentored work: a clinical placement, a program development and/or evaluation project, a scholarly thesis, or a writing project. It may combine independent work with a summer intensive workshop, such as the Columbia University Oral History summer workshop or an intensive writing workshop. The requirement can also be satisfied by clinical practicums that may include teaching, witnessing, or serving as a teaching assistant.

For more information on the courses please visit the website: http://sps.columbia.edu/narrative-medicine/courses

Research Methodology

All students who have not taken a graduate-level course in research methodology, with a focus on qualitative research and/or evaluative research, are required to take our Research Methods in Narrative Medicine course
