Specifics of Clinical Practicum Training:
For Potential Students: In this supervised training you gain invaluable clinical training, mentorship and practice in all aspects of clinical herbalism, as you serve the public in an incredibly important capacity.
Student-Clinicians are responsible performing all the tasks of a clinical practitioner. You will engage in all client contacts, health and nutrition review, client interviews, case evaluation and protocol, and guiding, supporting and educating roles.
In addition to clinic work, you also collaborate with peers on their cases, and participate in live round-table with faculty to discuss cases. Roundtable is one of the most powerful examples of the benefit of collaboration of advanced practitioners.
The Vital Ways Method taught and practiced in our Free Clinic is a cutting edge client-centered approach that is rooted in traditional wisdom, integrated into the most modern supportive client care, and includes components such as motivational interviewing, and leading strategies from nutritional and behavior change experts.
We see that helping others on their path to healing is an extremely important responsibility and treat each client in the most professional, respectful and courteous manner.
Each student-practitioner is required to adhere to our codes of professionalism, clinical practice, and conduct befitting the position and the responsibility.
