I would highly recommend this course for anyone with an interest in a holistic approach to medicine. The course is well structured with a focus on practical applications. As a medical research scientist by trade, I chose this course in particular owing to two factors : 1: the material is often backed by research verified information and 2: the lecturers are practitioners with real life experience.
The course itself is provided in a flexible online learning approach which works perfectly for me. I have a young family and a full time job and I find that the lecturers have been very approachable and flexible all the way through the course.
I really enjoy this course and I really feel like I will be well prepared to take up a career in this field.
