It is refreshing and rejuvenating to meet like-minded people with similar interests and skillsets.

The workshops offered by The Irish College of Traditional and Integrative Medicine(ICTIM) provide an opportunity to explore, in the company of others, the boundaries of integrative medicine, thus developing and deepening your own knowledge.

Meet and Greet

Collaboration, within a workshop, draws from a network of knowledge to enhance each person's clinical expertise.

Workshops provide an opportunity to network with people you may not normally meet in your daily practice.

Over 10 years experience

All ICTIM teachers are highly experienced in their field and offer a broad and deep exposure to clinical practice in all traditions.

Leave the Clinic

By leaving your daily routine, you give yourself the opportunity to reclaim the art of medicine.


Traditional Techniques

Traditional Techniques

The strength of biomedicine is in its scientific paradigm.

The strength of traditional medicine is in its broad range of therapeutic modalities, that address the patient holistically and which are able to relieve diverse pathologies, from blood pressure to burning feet syndrome, without recourse to drugs.

These workshops teach a range of traditional therapies, why they are of value, and how they can be integrated into clinical practice.


Artemesia argyi or “mugwort” is burned at specific acupuncture points on the body near the surface in order to trigger healing responses. During this workshop you will discuss and learn how to practice with the following traditional styles: Okyu moxa, cone moxa, stick-on moxa, needle-head moxa and moa cigar.

This  workshop comprises two parts. A practical workshop where you can participate in learning the skills of moxibustion and the accompanying  series of online lectures.

Business & Compliance

Business & Ethics

Integrative medicine raises its own unique ethical issues which need to be considered in relation to your clinical practice.

Ethics deals with the choices we make. It also examines the actions consequent to these choices, taking into account the duties and obligations that a health care practitioner has towards their patients and the wider community.

Issues such as health care resources, health care access, and cultural choices also come within its remit.

This workshop helps you explore these issues in a case study type format.

Clinical Expertise

Clinical Examinations

Workshops in clinical skills are offered to students of the Higher Diploma in Clinical Integrative Medicine and other healthcare professionals.

These workshops are held over two days and cover five clinical examinations from traditional and biomedical perspectives: the muscloskeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular, nervous and gastrointestinal systems.

With modern technology, there is less emphasis on becoming proficient in bedside examination skills, even though many diseases, or the functional effects of a pathology, are diagnosed and evaluated through clinical examination. These workshops help you to become confident in your clinical examination skills.

Good Dispensary Practices

Pharmacy is an integral part of clinical practice, but increased legislation, traceability, and transparency increase the need for due diligence in this important area. For herbal medicines there is an added dimension that the prescriptions are formulated for each individual patient. Proper procedures are required to ensure that this is done safety and efficiently.

This one day workshop covers the requirements for safe dispensing of natural products and herbs, including those manufactured ‘in-house’.

Horticultural & Manufacturing

GMP for Medicinal Herb

Taking the plant from the ground, to the end stage of medicine requires care at every stage. This course is designed to help you understand the pit falls in this process, as well as helping you to put the proper procedures in place, to ensure maximum care and quality.

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is one of the requirements  for manufacturing Natural Products, including herbal products, in order to ensure the quality and safety of the product. GMP is becoming a legal requirement in most jurisdictions due to demands for patient safety and traceability.

All natural products and herbs must be produced to appropriate quality and safety requirements. Quality starts with the starting material. Therefore, it is important that the growing and harvesting of herbs are done to the appropriate standards.
