We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Complementary Medicine take an interdisciplinary approach to medicine, combining alternative medicine with functional medical treatment.
Related specialisms include Osteopathy and Narrative Medicine. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree such as Physiotherapy, Sports Science, or Medicine.
Medical treatments across the world are highly varied, with conventional methods of treatment differing from country to country. Some cultures and religions don’t approve of care that may be considered standard practice in other places. As such, alternative medicine is sought by a high volume of the world’s population.
The purpose of these courses is to explore alternative treatments that are ethical, can be proven to have positive effects, and can be integrated into current healthcare systems. Methods of Complementary Medicine include practices such as acupuncture and osteopathy, products such as medical marijuana, and therapies such as meditation.
Careers in this field are highly varied and include roles across a range of sectors. You may choose to become a practitioner of alternative medical treatment like physiotherapy or chiropractic treatment, which may also branch into sports rehabilitation.
You could work in research centres dedicated to developing alternative treatments or on behalf of charities providing humanitarian aid.
