Program Syllabus

The Certified Veterinary Herbal Medicine program consists of five herbal modules, plus an additional introductory program for students are new to herbal medicine. Though the introductory program 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 program can be taken by small, mixed practice, 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. See Schedule and Tuition for more information.

The herbal modules with their respective syllabus are listed below:
