Clinical Ayurvedic Medicine (CAM)

Clinical Theory and Skills

The Clinical Ayurvedic Medicine Course (formerly Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist 1 / CAS1) includes the study of the classical ayurvedic understanding of disease within each system of the body as well as an overview of the western understanding. Through in-depth studies in each module, students are taken on a clinical journey of understanding how to manage disease. At this level students receive additional extensive knowledge of panchakarma and herbal medicine including extensive herbal formula design. These students will be able to design herbal formulas that are specific to a client’s dosha in conjunction with the client’s specific state of disease.

Please note that this program is academic only. This course is part of the Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist and Ayurvedic Doctor programs.
