Course Syllabus

The Veterinary Herbal Medicine Course consists of five herbal modules, plus an additional introductory course for those taking an herbal course for the first time.  Though the introductory course is a prerequisite for the other herbal modules and should be taken first, the other modules do not have to be taken in any particular order.  However, the completion of all modules is required for certification.  The herbal medicine course can be taken by small, mixed, and equine veterinarians, and both small and large animals (mostly dogs and horses) are used in case studies and wet labs.  Each module is offered on-site and online.  However, note that while all modules are offered online each year, only two to three modules are offered on-site.  See Schedule and Tuition for more information.

The herbal modules with their respective course syllabi are listed below:

Chinese Herbal Fundamental Knowledge

The Chinese Herbal Fundamental Knowledge course is a prerequisite requirement for those who have not taken a Chinese herbal course before, though it can also offer a nice review to those who want to refresh their herbal knowledge. The course is presented in 15 one-hour lectures online. Students unfamiliar to Chinese herbs must take this short introductory course before taking the other herbal modules. This course is currently offered online for $375.
