Time Commitment: The 24-month program offers a total of 510 didactic hours and 200 clinical hours.

During the first two terms, in-person classes meet for four consecutive days 4 to 5 times each term. During the final term, students attend four-day monthly sessions completing clinical internship training and a comprehensive review of program material. Students are in classes or clinic approximately 8 hours per day.

Online coursework is delivered in both synchronous and asynchronous formats. Schedules for synchronous online sessions are listed on each course syllabus.

Students are required to meet (via phone/video) with a faculty mentor twice per term to discuss their progress through the program.


Curriculum: The curriculum allows students to build their foundation of herbal knowledge before beginning to work with patients in their final term. By studying individual herbs and herbal formulas simultaneously, students learn the functions of the herbs in relation to one another along with their historical and classical context, which has proven effective in helping our students succeed.
