Virtual Chinese Herbal Medicine Diploma by Phoenix Academy, accredited by the Federation of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners (FTCMP)
The Coronavirus introduced distanced/remote consultations for the first time ever, as practitioners were unable to practice face-to-face. The pandemic brought many changes and caused many people to rethink the way in which they operate, including Phoenix Academy. Because of this, we introduced the Virtual Chinese Herbal Medicine Diploma in 2020.
However, the world is beginning to change once again as we slowly start to return to a sense of normality. Once again, individuals are getting busier so we have tailored our programme to suit everyone. The 2022 cohort will feature pre-recorded lectures that will be accessible at any time, more teaching hours than ever before and further feedback on assignments.
Students will be taught the fundamentals of Chinese herbal medicine online. The course will teach 10 modules over 10 months, followed by an open book exam at the end of the 10 months. Upon completion, students will become members of the FTCMP and will be able to practice Chinese herbal medicine. This course is exclusively for healthcare professionals who already have a foundation in Traditional Chinese Medicine knowledge.
In March 2020, physical appointments and treatments stopped due to the outbreak of COVID-19. This affected thousands of practitioners who relied on face-to-face treatment, causing many practitioners to stop treatments altogether. However, those practitioners who are trained in herbal medicine were able to continue practising using online and remote diagnoses. This added skill allowed herbalists to have a steady income and ensured patients were still able to receive treatment.
By learning Chinese herbal medicine, you are setting yourself apart from other practitioners. You are able to broaden your knowledge and further skillset, which allows you to treat more patients and have other avenues of income.
