ONE DAY WORKSHOP: Hands On Basic Clinical Skills

ONE DAY WORKSHOP: Hands On Basic Clinical Skills

Join Holistic Doctor, Nic Rowley, to gain practical understanding of basic clinical skills.

Ideal for students and practitioners of complementary and alternative medicine, this workshop presents a concise approach to clinical examination in a practical and straightforward manner.

Nic Rowley MA, PGCE, MRCS, LRCP, BAc, trained in medicine at Cambridge University and the Royal Free Hospital.  He has practiced as a holistic doctor in the UK, France and Denmark, and was the architect and project director of Heartwood Education.

He is former dean of studies at The School of Herbal Medicine, vice-principal at the European School of Osteopathy, and has taught basic clinical science to hundreds of students over the years.

His passion is to encourage student practitioners to integrate their clinical assessment into the context of the patient's life, circumstances and personal story.


The Healing Garden

Created and run by medical herbalist Kirsten Hartvig and her team, The Healing Garden, is an Emerson College Partner Initiative, based in the Rachel Carson Centre here at Emerson.

'At the Healing Garden, we work to unite botany and herbal medicine with biodynamics, and to create a peaceful inspirational forum for learning, healing and conservation, promoting health and wellbeing for all living beings.

In the garden, we value all lifeforms, and we cherish their companionship.  We know that internal and external biodiversity is the key to harmony, and that being part of nature is the most important part of any healing process'. - Kirsten Hartvig
