Navajo Nation Clinical Week – 2019
September 23 - 8:00 AM - September 27 - 2:30 PM| $550
Join us for a clinical intensive week in the Navajo Nation in northeast AZ near the NM border. This week will include not only clinical practice for our students both in the clinic and apothecary, but also a lot of practice in mobile-clinic work, clinic setup, plant walks and education.
At the same time, primitive engineering students will also be taking part in water purification, rainwater collection and off-grid building projects in the same area.
This clinical intensive week is open to herbal medicine students at The Human Path aka Herbal Medics Academy (as well as other selected herbal medicine schools with prior approval*see below).
The clinical week experience is a 5-day clinical class and exercise for herbalists (clinical or emergent responder program) and medicine makers (Apothecarist program). This is a chance not only to learn and apply clinical skills as an individual, but also how to set up and run a clinic as a team.
During this clinical week experience students will perform intake, prepare and run an apothecary as well as possibly administer first aid and stabilization. While we cannot guarantee the number of clinical cases we will see each day, the emphasis is on having as many clinical visitors as we can manage, every day.
Clinical weeks are very rewarding and challenging experiences that teach students how to perform under pressure, work as a team and gain immense amounts of herbal clinical experience.
This clinical week will be a unique opportunity for students to get experience working with the native (Navajo) population in very rural settings.
