Veterinary Herbal Apprenticeship and Retreat


Sep 14, 2018 to Apr 28, 2019
8:30 AM until 2:00 PM


This Veterinary Herbal Apprenticeship and Retreat is intended to train veterinarians in the use of Western Herbal Medicine. This is a comprehensive course including organ system-based Materia Medica, medicine-making, herb walks, self-care and more. This course is intended to help prepare the veterinarian for the VBMA Certification Exam. Each 3-day weekend will include multiple Materia Medica lectures with organoleptic components, an extensive medicine-making lab, and an herb walk to a different part of the Island, plus additional lectures and activities. There will be homework consisting of writing Materia Medica and formulating herbal products between every session, as well as a presentation of an herb walk in the student’s native area. Self-care is also a large focus of this training. We believe that healthier veterinarians make better practitioners. We will have lectures and extra evening activities focus on self-care, as we believe good health starts with ourselves. Bonus offerings will include Qi Gong in the breaks, picnics, shared meals, and a movie night! Breakfast will be included every morning in the classroom. CE credits for this course are pending.
