WHAT IS THE ADVANCED EXTERNAL HERBAL MEDICINE INTENSIVE?
This is 24 hours of online intensive materials for students to have even greater depth of training in certain specialty areas, followed by a live interaction session with instructors. These are designed for apothecarists that would like to create a product line, specialize in a certain area of herbal preparations, or to set up a home apothecary. The intensive will have advanced materials not covered in the main online 12-week external course. The External Medicine online is recommended before doing the Advanced External intensive.
